Bachata

 

The Bachata dance makes you swirl into a vortex where you and your dance partner can entwine your souls and spiral into eternity and go to a place where only the two of you matter.

In its original format, Bachata was basically romantic guitar music that emerged from the Dominican Republic in the 60’s. The rhythm was eventually accelerated and a new dance step initiated. The dance consists of sideway movements accentuated by pronounced hip hitches at the end of each sideway move. Its distinguishing features are its distinctive and sensuous body movements. Ever seen a ‘hot’ scene in a movie and always thought to yourself “if only that could happen in real life”. Well, it does with Bachata!
