BOOGALOO:

Description: Boogaloo or bugalú (Latin boogaloo, Latin R&B) is a genre of Latin music and dance which was popular in the United States in the 1960s. Boogaloo originated in New York City mainly among teenage Puerto Ricans. The style was a fusion of popular African American rhythm and blues (R&B) and soul music with mambo and son montuno, with songs in both English and Spanish. The American Bandstand television program introduced the dance and the music to the mainstream American audience.
Except for the name, the dance is unrelated to the electric boogaloo, a style of dance which developed decades later under the influence of funk music and hip-hop dance.

We do offer Boogaloo Performance courses now and then. Please check our performances page to learn more.
