Exploring the Origins of Merengue
The captivating dance known as Merengue has two competing origin stories. Some believe it was initially a dance practiced by African slaves in the Dominican Republic, where dragging the leg helped relieve the irritation caused by shackles.

Today, the energetic rhythms of Merengue inspire dancers worldwide to move to the beat of the music.
