Bachata Dance Lessons
Bachata Dance Information
Bachata is a type of music and dance originally created in the rural countrysides of the Dominican Republic. Similar to the blues, Bachata music is often sad, relating tales of heartbreak and bitterness. Bachata dancing is relatively up-tempo though, and consists of basic back and forth or sideways motions. Because of its history as a dance between lovers, there are many sensual hip and body movements, with the opportunity for dance partners to move very close to each other.
