BACHATA

  • Overview

    Bachata is about connecting with your dance partner. Another popular Latin dance in Los Angeles, Bachata music can be found in many of LA’s best Latin clubs. It originates from the Dominican Republic with African influences, and has similarities to Salsa, Merengue, and Cumbia. Whereas Salsa is danced front to back, Bachata is danced side to side in either open or closed position; it can be a very seductive, romantic and playful dance.

    Bachata is very easy to learn. Let us show you how!
