Latin dance refers to types of ballroom and folk dance that originated in Latin America. Latin dances in international dance sport competitions are the Cuban Rumba and Cha-Cha-Cha - named for its three quick steps; the Brazilian Samba is best known for its appearance at Carnival and the Paso Doble, which originated in Spain. Social Latin dances include: the African influenced Cuban Salsa, Mambo - similar to the ChaCha but with a hip sway, the Dominican Merengue and Bachata - named after Bachata guitar music, Bomba, Plena and the Argentine Tango.
