The romantic Bolero is the slowest of the Latin dances. It combines controlled movement with dramatic expression of the music.

Dance Competition

The Bolero is a smooth, sophisticated, sentimental love dance. The emphasis is on smoothness and graceful turns with much communication between partners. The slower music to which it is performed, enhances a feeling of romance.

The Bolero has different characteristics from its Cuban relative the Rumba. Its long sweeping side steps and use of rise and fall create a softness that makes this dance unique among the Rhythm dances. The expanding and contracting dance position makes a very dramatic and romantic statement.


  • You’ve learned to dance the Rumba and you want to level-up your “slow dance” game. The Bolero is beautiful and expressive

  • You can unlock a whole new range of music to dance to. Contemporary, lyrical ballads are great to Bolero dance to

  • You will be able to impress and inspire others when you dance. Bolero is always admired on the dance floor
