The Bolero was introduced to the U.S. in the mid-1930s. At that time, it was danced in its classical form, which was performed to a sustained drum beat. It evolved from this classical form to what was called Son, with a faster tempo (later renamed as the Rumba). Spanish dancer Sebastian Cereza is credited with creating the dance in the year 1780. Since then, the Bolero has remained a true source of expressing sensuous feelings. It is rightfully called the “dance of love.” The Bolero is one of the most expressive dances. It uses arms and hands, legs and feet, as well as facial expression, all which contribute to its beauty.
