What is Bachata?
 

Bachata originated in the Dominican Republic.

This Latin dance and its musical roots are closely tied to Merengue, which also came about in the region.

 

Structurally, a Bachata band is quite simpler using just 5 basic instruments... A simple percussive rhythm, a base, a guiro, and 2 guitars.

Bachata has evolved to be the most popular Latin partner dance in contemporary North America.

Traditional "Dominican Bachata" dance has evolved from being a percussive partner dance with focus more on the lower body, into a full body fluid movement style.

 

This influence comes mainly from the Spanish Peninsula where the dance is known as “Bachata Sensual," amongst other styles.
