The romantic Bolero is the Slowest of the Latin dances. It combines controlled movement with dramatic expression of the music.
The Bolero has the same Afro-Cuban roots as the Rumba and is thought to have originated from Cuban or Spanish folk dances such as Danzon and Beguine.
The Bolero has some different characteristics from its Cuban relative the Rumba. It’s long sweeping side steps and use of rise and fall create a softness that makes this dance unique among the rhythm dances. The expanding and contracting dance position makes a very dramatic and romantic statement.
