Soltinho means "A Little Loose". This style is relatively new and is a very balanced mixture of jive, swing and rock. People who wish to learn Brazilian dance usually start with Soltinho as there is less technique involved which makes the dance steps easy to learn and it can be danced to various forms of music.

Known as the official "Dance of Love", there are two theories related to the origin of Bolero. One credits the Spanish people for inventing it, and the other says that it originated in Cuba and was popularized by Mexicans. When Bolero came to Brazil, it was heavily influenced by Tango which gave it some new dance steps and variations.

Is the most popular genre of music and dance in Brazil’s Northeast, to the extent that historically “going to the Forró” meant simply going to party or going out.
