There are three primary partner dance styles in what is commonly known as the latin dance community: Salsa, Bachata and Kizomba (or SBK, for short). If you Google latin dance congress/festival you’ll typically find any combination of the three styles in the titles. For example, ([City X] SBK Congress, [City Y] Salsa Bachata Congress, or [City Z] Bachata Kizomba Fusion Festival. Tango is another popular dance style, but rarely will you see it bundled together with salsa, bachata or kizomba at socials, dance clubs and festivals. Merengue seems to be a distant fourth and most socials/festivals play merengue music sparingly or not at all.
With that said – what is your favorite style of dance among SBK? Which gets you most excited to dance at a social or event? Feel free to leave a comment!
