Learn how to dance the Merengue, the national dance of the Dominican Republic, with Azusa from C.U. Dance and Frank Bishun. Practice your moves all night with live music from Latin Fusion band, La República!
Forged with Cuban salsa and North American pop, La República emerges with a tasty brew of “timba-fied” billboard hits that will keep you moving all night long. Based out of Toronto by way of Cuba, Wisconsin, El Salvador, Miami Beach and Trinidad, La República celebrates hits from artists such as Ariana Grande, Hall and Oates, Alessia Cara and David Bowie.
From his first audition over 25 years ago for a part in a Broadway musical, Frank Bishun has dedicated his life to dance. Inspired by the likes of Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Gregory Hines and Mikhail Baryshnikov, Frank’s dancing style has been described as charismatic, energetic and just pure entertainment. Frank’s diverse background in dance includes tap, modern jazz, hip hop, social and Latin ballroom.
