What is Bachata?

Bachata dance styles originated in the Dominican Republic in the late 1950’s. This dance genre is danced as a three step ending in a tap on the 4th beat with Cuban hip motions. Originall Bachata was similar to bolero with slow music and mostly closed positions. However, eventually it expanded to faster music and different dance positions. It is not as many fast as Salsa, therefore a large number of movements for bachata dancing can be executed in either a smooth style or with a slight hop.
