As I saw on the forum, a lot of people are discussing some types of dances…Could somebody explain me what dances are popular in DR? Are they a part of DR national mentality? I love dancing very much and would like to try some dancing steps in national style.

Thank you a lot for useful information. I have just looked through videos, so now I have the general understanding about dances in Dominican Republic. Unfortunately, I am not a professional dancer, simply lover, but I am eager to try.

Don’t worry. You’ll get lots of chances to try. And the other people will likely be as ‘good’ as you.

Its always fun to dance on vacation specifically if you go to all inclusive and eat all that food you have to find way to do some exercise and dancing is the best option!
