Bachata is a beautiful, romantic and downright sexy partnered dance.
Bachata is a relatively easy dance style to learn in terms of its footwork, however, bachata is far more about body movement than it is about footwork. At MLD, we breakdown and focus on the body movement of the dance in a very detailed manner so that students gain a solid understanding of how to create the movement technically. This enables students the ability to then execute it with the correct technique which naturally results in the dance looking and feeling gorgeously smooth and beautiful!
Bachata music is quite simply captivating. If you are unfamiliar - do yourself a favour and search it up!
Although it originated in the Dominican Republic around the middle of the 20th century, it wasn't until the 80's and beyond that Bachata started to spread internationally and make it's way into the mainstream. This massive global resurgence has snowballed to the level of popularity of the Bachata music and dance style that we enjoy today. There are many artists who can be credited here for helping bring Bachata to the mainstream such as “Aventura” and “Extreme” plus many others creating Bachata music once again and bringing popularity to this beautiful style of music and dance.
