salsas and merengues


Explanation:
Domaine(s) : art 1 / 1
merengue
Variante(s) orthographique(s).
merengued
merenguing
mérengué
Variante(s) orthographique(s).
méringue
Déf. :
Danse d'Haïti et de Saint-Domingue, à deux temps, proche de la samba, mais avec un rythme moins syncopé.

Note :
Le mérengué est caractérisé par son déhanchement et se danse en « position rumba » ou en lâché total.
Le mérengué se danse en déhanché contraire - c'est-à-dire que la jambe qui se déplace n'est pas accompagnée du poids du corps - et ce à chaque mouvement. De ce fait, le mouvement de hanche est beaucoup plus accusé que dans le déhanché normal.
[Office de la langue française, 1986]


Example:
April 13: The Tucson Latin Jazz Orchestra, Tucson's favorite 14-piece Latin jazz ensemble plays salsas, sambas, merengues, and more. 5 p.m. (http://www.opus1.com/emol/tucson/tjs.html)
