Bachata dAnce

Bachata originates from the Dominican Republic.

The Latin dance and music 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 partner Latin dance in contemporary North America. The Bachata dance has evolved from a more lower body and percussive partner dance (today referred to as “Dominican Bachata”) to more of a fluid full body movement style, heavily influenced by the Spanish Peninsula known as “Bachata Sensual," amongst other styles.
