Latin dance includes a variety of dances originating in Latin America. Examples include the Cha-cha-cha, Rumba, Samba, Salsa, Mambo, Danza, Merengue, Tumba, Bachata, Cumbia, Bolero and more. Some also include the other tangos & Argentine Tango in this list, although they differ from the rest in their style. It will evolve more with the coming Latin Night Club and Latin Dance Studio.
