On Saturday, Feb. 7, the Frank Erwin Center will transform into a bass-bumping Latin night club when “The King of Latin Pop” and Mr. Worldwide bring the biggest party of the year to Austin. With rising star J Balvin opening the show, you can bet this trio will have hips shaking and bodies twirling all night long!
Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, there’s a Latin dance move for everyone. Crank up some tunes and check out these essential steps to learn before you come to the fiesta on Saturday night!
If you’re brand new to the world of Latin dance, this move is for you! The basic Merengue is very simple to learn, but you’ll look like a pro on the dance floor.
Once you’ve mastered the Merengue, you’re ready to add a few more steps and take on the Bachata! With a little practice and a lot of hip action, you’ll be able to sway, swing and shimmy with the best of ‘em.
Salsa doesn’t just go with your chips and queso—there’s another kind, and it’s just as flavorful! It takes a little practice but once you get the hang of it, you’ll never want to stop!
No partner? No problem!
Put your own spin on any of these moves and you’ll have a dance circle forming around you in no time!
