  • My fiancé and a I took a 1 hour private lesson for Bachata with Jeanette, and so glad we did! She is a fabulous instructor. Gave us so many tips that would have taken us months to learn by practicing on our own. Highly recommend!!!

What is the Bachata?

Bachata is a popular Latin dance style that originated in the Dominican Republic in the early 1960s. It has roots in African and Indigenous Taino rhythms, as well as European influences such as bolero. Initially, Bachata was considered a more informal, rural dance style, often associated with lower social classes. However, over time, it gained popularity and respect, evolving into a sophisticated and sensual dance enjoyed by people worldwide.

Bachata dance consists of a basic step that involves three side-to-side or forward-and-backward weight changes, followed by a tap or syncopated step on the fourth beat. The dance is usually performed in an eight-count sequence (1-2-3-tap, 5-6-7-tap) and can be danced in a closed, open, or semi-closed position with a partner.

Some highlights of Bachata dance include:

  • Connection: Bachata emphasizes a strong connection between partners, which is essential for executing smooth and fluid movements. This connection is established through body contact, hand placement, and communication between the dancers.
  • Body movement: Bachata incorporates various body movements such as hip rolls, body rolls, and isolations, which add style and sensuality to the dance. These movements require good control and coordination and are often emphasized in sensual Bachata.
  • Turns and spins: Bachata includes a variety of turns and spins for both the lead and follow, which add excitement and flair to the dance. These movements require precise timing, balance, and technique.
  • Footwork: Bachata footwork can be simple or intricate, depending on the dancers’ skill level and the style of Bachata being danced. Footwork variations add personal style and flair to the dance, making it more dynamic and engaging.
  • Musicality: Bachata dancers are encouraged to interpret and express the music through their movements and connection with their partner. This musicality helps make the dance more enjoyable and emotionally engaging for both the dancers and the audience.
