Latin-American dances are really popular nowadays. Their colourful, emotionally strong music is very similar to the Hungarian temper; therefore many students of our country attend these courses.
At the lessons Latin-American dances of ballroom dance forms, like cha-cha-cha, rumba, samba and jive and trendy dances like merengue, carioca, mambo, lambada are taught. Cha-cha-cha is a Cuban dance with several characteristics of entertainment and flirtation with the audience and the partner; these are the main features that made it so popular. In Cuba and the Caribbean rumba is very popular, which the people living there have danced for hundreds of years in a slow and fast mood. The ballroom dance form is the slower version. The Brazilian samba is still a great show during the 3-day-long festivals of Rio de Janeiro. Jive is the ballroom dance form of boogie-woogie, lindy hop and rock & roll, danced for slower music.
