WHAT IS BACHATA?
Bachata is a street latin music genre and dance that originated in the Dominican Republic and spread to the Western World. Did you know Usher featured in a Romeo Santos Bachata and R&B fusion single called Promise that topped the Billboard Latin Songs chart in 2011?
The dance that originated in the Dominican Republic is a partner dance characterised by a side-to-side motion, body isolations, and loads of footwork and freestyle moves. As the music travelled to the western world, a ‘traditional’ bachata dance style of formed that features turn patterns and dips, and partners have a very close connection. As the music gains popularity, the music and the dance have developed and grown into an street latin fusion style. Right here in Melbourne, most dancers are familiar with a fusion of all the niche Bachata styles.
