Traditional Puerto Rican Dance
There are many different kinds of dance on Puerto Rico, and the following are some of the most popular styles.
Merengue: Adapted from a genre of dance on the Dominican Republic, the style of merengue that is popular on Puerto Rico has two variations. The choreography of the ballroom merengue is a basic two-step, but with a contrary twist of the hip to the right, which makes it somewhat difficult to perform. The two dance partners get into a vals, or waltz-like position. The couple then side steps, which is known as paso de la empalizada or "stick-fence step," followed by either a clockwise or counter-clockwise turn. During all of the dance steps of the ballroom merengue, the couple never separates. The second kind of merengue is called the Figure Merengue or Merengue de Figura, and the performing couple makes individual turns without letting go of each other's hands.
Plena: Couples dance the simple choreography of the plena, though there is evidence it was originally danced apart. Some plena dances are performed at a blistering pace, accompanying vivacious drum beats.
Bomba: The bomba dance is vital to the bomba genre of music and provides the foundation for the rhythm. The history of bomba can be traced back to the end of the 17th century, when the dance was developed along the coast of Puerto Rico. The West African slaves and their descendants used the bomba dances to celebrate baptisms, marriages, and even to plan rebellions. For this reason, the slaves were only allowed to hold these ceremonies on Sundays and feast days. The bomba is danced in pairs, but there is no contact. The dancers each challenge the drums and musicians with their movements by approaching them and performing a series of fast steps called floretea piquetes, creating a rhythmic discourse.
Salsa: The word salsa simply refers to a fusion of different rhythms and is a mixture of many Latin and Afro-Caribbean dances. Salsa music was first created in the 1960s, and since then its popularity has extended to the non-Latino world. Similar to the mambo, salsa dancing has a pattern of six steps danced over eight counts of music. Salsa has a side-to-side feel, and turns are an important part of the dance.
Cha-Cha: Named for the scraping sounds of the dancers feet, the cha-cha-cha is a spin-off of the mambo. Dancing the cha-cha consists of three quick steps called the triple step or cha-cha-cha, followed by two slower steps on the one beat and two beat.

 

Featured Puerto Rican Dance Company
Guateque - The Folkloric Ballet of Puerto Rico
For many, the words "Puerto Rican dance" immediately conjure the image of sinuous salsa moves. How many know, however, that the traditions of Puerto Rican dance are as rich and varied as the island's population itself, with elements drawn from its earliest indigenous ancestors, as well as from its European colonizers and early African inhabitants? For the past 22 years, the Guateque Folkloric Ballet of Puerto Rico has been a "living museum," developing, preserving, and displaying the diverse origins of the island's traditional music and dance. This October, Guateque will be presenting this colorful legacy-complete with more than 30 dancers and a dozen musicians-during a two-week tour of the Eastern United States.
His dancers and students call him teacher, choreographer, artistic director, even costume designer. Others have called him a cultural historian, a visionary. And all of these words, indeed, describe Joaqu韓 Nieves Caldero, founder and director of the Guateque Folkloric Ballet of Puerto Rico. Mr. Nieves founded Guateque in 1976, in his home town of Corozal, Puerto Rico, while pursuing a bachelor's degree in Anthropology at the University of Puerto Rico and, later, his Master's degree.
