It come from the Dominican Republic. The music is a fast arrangements with a 2/4 beat.

The appelation came from a sweet dessert because women look so delectable when they dance it.

I once asked the great dance teacher, Ben Astacio in the Dominican Republic, "Why do some people drag one leg when dancing the Merengue? Is it because as the legend goes, Merengue was started by slaves chained at the legs, cutting sugar while singing songs to a drum beat? "

 He said, "Thats not why I do it. I got the gout."
