This dance style has Afro-Cuban roots, just as Rumba does, and is considered to have emerged along with the popular Cuban or Danish dances, such as ‘Danzon’ and ‘Beguine’.
Bolero is usually danced to music in a 4/4 meter, and the tempo is slower than at Rumba. While Rumba is highly rhythmic, Bolero rather sounds as a Latin ballad. Therefore, it is graceful, and the rise and lift movements give fluency to the movement.
THE SONG OF SWEET-BITTER LOVE
Let yourself be inflamed with one of the slowest and most sensual dances.
