In a private class, the dance instructor will customize each class to your skills and previous dancing knowledge.
With time you will notice the differences among the three different Latin dances, not only by the beat and instruments played in the music, but in the way they are danced. Bachata and salsa are a bit similar in the beat because they are both in 4/4 time and as you dance you take steps on 3 of the 4 beats. Merengue is 2/4 time so it therefore feels faster.
