What is bachata?
Bachata is a style of dance that originated in the Dominican Republic. It is danced widely all over the world but not identically. It started to develop in very different styles. The same as happens to a lot of other dance styles.
We’ve learned form pro’s called “Ataca & Alemana” Type their names in google and you’ll find loads of stuff from them on the internet. Off course we have our own style, but it’s close to what they do as we learned from them.
What we like about it, is you learn a bit from all styles. Especially as a beginner, we want to learn you a style which you can apply to every kind of dancer. Feeling comfortable on the dancefloor is what we think is most important! Doing body rolls and all kind of body movement like in the sensual style, or doing verry quick footwork as in the Dominican (Traditional) style is more to do after you have a lot of basic moves in your file.
So, yes we do some bodymovement and some footwork, but we go easy and it is for everybody!
