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

History
The Bolero has the same Afro-Cuban roots as the Rumba. It originated from Cuban or Spanish folk dances.  Danzon and Beguine are few of them

Music
Bolero is  played in 4/4 time .

Rumba music is very rhythmical.

The lyrical Bolero sounds more like a Latin Ballad.

Characteristics
The Bolero has some 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.

Bolero songs and artists include:
* Con Los Anos Que Me Quedan – Gloria Estefan
* Perfidia – Nat King Cole
* Sin Excusas Ni Rodeos – Julio Iglesias
* From Here To Eternity – Frank Sinatra
