Cha Cha - The Ubiquitous Latin Dance Style
One of the most ubiquitous of Latin dance styles, the Cha-Cha (or chachachá) developed either from the Cuban Danzón of the 1870s or from a slower version of the Mambo (called the "Double Mambo") in New York. By the early 1950s, the dance spread like wildfire through American musical culture.

Caribbean music
A substantial amount of Tropical music does not have a structure that is associated with a particular Tropical subgenre, hence such music is simply classified as "Caribbean" as a catch-all derived from the general geographic region where the music originated.

Merengue
Merengue is a type of music and dance from the Dominican Republic. It is popular in the Dominican Republic and all over Latin America. It is thought that the name of the music was derived from the fast frenzied movement on the dance floor that could remind one of an egg beater in action, whipping up merengue!

Rumba - It's All In The Hips!
Rumba is a family of percussive rhythms, song and dance. It originates in Cuba as a combination of the musical traditions of Spanish colonizers and of Africans brought to Cuba as slaves. Truly one of the most sensual of all Latin dances, the Rumba dance is a masterful display of hip and body control with sensual interplay between couples.
