Bolero is a slow, sensuous, Spanish rhythm dance. The lead in the dance mimics the movements of the matador in a bullfight, while the follower’s movements alternate between mimicking the bull or the matador’s cape. It’s a dramatic, passionate, and intense dance.

You’ll notice that Bolero dancing has the dancers rise and fall. This rise and fall comes from the body, not the feet, making it a very physically demanding dance. Because of this, it is not danced socially very often, but it remains a popular dance for competitions.

Don’t let the fact that it’s physically demanding scare you! It is a fun dance and an excellent lower body workout. Learning to Bolero dance is also a great stress reliever and a wonderful way to make new friends!
