Learn how to do the side-together step in merengue from professional dancers Ernesto Palma and Crystal Rodriguez in this Howcast dance video.


Our side-together step is almost like our basic step, except we're taking a larger step. It's kind of like when you're in the movie theaters, and you're through a row of people, and you're going to say, "Excuse me." You're going to side-together. You're going to go side-together. Excuse me. Excuse me. Side-together. Side-together. You're going to go right. It's the same thing. Side-together. Side together.

You can then add the Cuban motion. You can go back to your left. Side-together. Side-together. If the music is fast, you make smaller steps. If the music is slow, you make bigger steps. Let's try the side-together step with music. Five. Six. Seven. Go. That's your side-step together.
