Our Bachata Dance Classes In Toronto cover this social (partner) dance style which is generally credited as having come from the Dominican Republic. However the “Authentic” Dominican Bachata style has evolved with influences from Ballroom & Salsa, and more recently Zouk, Tango and other dances into a “Modern” style with more exaggerated torso and hip movement, and a side-to-side step pattern.
Depending on the music, mood, and preference of the dance partners, Bachata can be danced either formally or very passionately, simply or with complicated patterns. You don’t need complexity to dance it well, but many who love the dance would say that if you never allow yourself to dance it passionately, you have never really experienced Bachata. Like most social dances, doing it “right” is more about having fun and focusing on a good connection with your dance partner than about flashy moves and trying to impress people.
