Bachata

A rhythm that grew from the Dominican Republic, bachata is another dance that has taken the world by storm. Originating from Latin ballads and Dominican merengue, it is characterised by a unique guitar (requinto) and a strong presence of the bongos. It has it all: fast and complex footwork, a more sensual frame, big body movements, a slower cadence and turn patterns! Incredibly popular in any Latin dance scene.
