Dancers use wide sweeping movements to express the feelings conveyed by the slow sensuous music. You will notice a rise and fall that is found in Waltz, the twisting contra-body motion associated with Tango and some of the slinky hip and body movements found in the latin dances.  The wide variety of techniques employed to execute a proper Bolero are the reason it is considered an advanced dance. Fortunately it is as much fun to watch as it is to perform.
