About This List

I created this list for fun, as something for Latin and Ballroom Dancers who are big Enrique Iglesias fans like me. This is a great way to come up with fun, contemporary songs for dance routines and performances, or just for practice and warm ups to get you started and in a good mood! I alphabetized the list by dance genre and have included Bachata, Bolero, Cha-Cha, and Rumba.

"Loco" by Enrique Iglesias (Bachata)

I love this bachata song by Enrique Iglesias. It's so passionate and full of emotion, and the combination of Enrique Iglesias and Romeo Santos in one song is amazing! This song always moves me whenever I dance bachata and is a must-have for any passionate bachata playlist!

BACHATA: "Loco" by Enrique Iglesias ft. Romeo Santos

"El Perdedor" by Enrique Iglesias

I love this bachata song by Enrique Iglesias and how his voice is full of such pain and longing! It's so romantic and sad and passionate all at the same time! It makes me want to hold onto my partner and get extra close with them. A perfect song for your bachata playlist or performance because it's got tons of emotion and character!

BACHATA: "El Perdedor" by Enrique Iglesias (English Translation: The Loser)

"Cuando Me Enamoro" by Enrique Iglesias ft. Juan Luis Guerra

I love this cha-cha by Enrique Iglesias ft. Juan Luis Guerra because it's so optimistic and romantic and full of good-feeling. It's a good tempo and very relaxing to dance to, great song for warming up or practicing your cha-cha! You can also dance a Rumba to this if you wanted to.

CHA-CHA: "Cuando Me Enamoro" by Enrique Iglesias ft. Juan Luis Guerra

"Dimelo" by Enrique Iglesias (Cha-Cha)

There's something about the song "Dimelo" by Enrique Iglesias that I just find addicting. The raw passion and energy in this song really resonate with me. Even when I'm just listening to this song in the car, it still makes me want to get up and dance! This is a faster-paced cha-cha song, but you can always slow it down a bit and work your way up to dancing it at regular-speed.

CHA-CHA: "Dimelo" by Enrique Iglesias

"Taking Back My Love" by Enrique Iglesias

This is a more contemporary American sound by Enrique Iglesias, perfect for a modern-style cha-cha routine with a lot of drama and passion and edge! You can also do a hip-hop routine to this song, or at least add some hip-hop/modern dance elements to your cha-cha routine if you wanted to mix things up a bit and add some depth and variety to your performance.

CHA-CHA: "Taking Back My Love" by Enrique Iglesias ft. Ciara

"Ayer" by Enrique Iglesias (Rumba/Bolero)

I love this song "Ayer" by Enrique Iglesias because it's really relaxing. It's perfect for bolero practice whenever I'm feeling stressed out because I find his voice very soothing. This song is also good for rumba if you don't know bolero. I would recommend this song for a bolero routine if you are looking for something passionate, but not overpowering to perform to.

RUMBA/BOLERO: "Ayer" by Enrique Iglesias

"Heroe" by Enrique Iglesias (Spanish Version)

I don't think that there's much I need to say about why this song is amazing; it's pretty self-explanatory once you listen to it. If you don't have this song on your rumba/ballroom playlist already, you should add it! This is a perfect song for rumba and bolero routines, especially for couples who are doing a special/romantic dance performance routine!

RUMBA/BOLERO: "Heroe" by Enrique Iglesias

"Heart Attack" by Enrique Iglesias (Rumba/Bolero)

This is a very modern style song that you can use for a bolero or rumba with free-style, hip-hop elements. I would recommend this song for dancers/couples for who are interested in performing a non-traditional bolero that is unique and edgy. It's also a good warm up song to get loosened up before you start dancing/practicing since the music allows for a lot of improvisational moments.

RUMBA/BOLERO: "Heart Attack" by Enrique Iglesias

"Lloro Por Ti" by Enrique Iglesias (Rumba/Bolero)

"Lloro Por Ti" by Enrique Iglesias (English Translation:"I Cry for You" is a great song for dancers who want a traditional sounding bolero or rumba song for practice or performance. It has beautiful lyrics and lots of passion and emotion.

RUMBA/BOLERO: "Lloro Por Ti" by Enrique Iglesias

"Ritmo Total" by Enrique Iglesias (Samba)

I actually used this song, "Ritmo Total" by Enrique Iglesias for a samba routine that I performed for my dance class. I like it for dancing because it's not too fast so you don't feel rushed, and it's passionate without being overpowering so you don't feel overwhelmed by the music.

SAMBA: "Ritmo Total" by Enrique Iglesias
