Have you heard of Salsa? I bet most of you do.
What about Bachata?
Bachata is originated from Dominican Republic. It’s a four step beat dance with Cuban hip motion. This is the dance that I have been learning for the past 2 months. I started with the steps and listen to the tempo. And just recently, or rather a week or two ago, I started to learn new tricks.
I can’t help but to admit that I’m a very slow learner in the beginning. It’s not easy to learn to dance but luckily I’ve managed to catch up a bit though I’m still struggling to listen to the tempo and on how to pull and push my partner’s hand. At times, I lost concentration.
Anyhow, soon..yeah..soon I’ll dance better on the dance floor.
At the mean time, let me show you some of the video clips of Bachata dance.
This is a good video to learn to dance Bachata.
And this is a very sensual Bachata dance. It’s best to dance with your girlfriend or wife or anyone who is comfortable to have sensual dance with you.
The last video clip shows the way Bachata Rueda shall be danced.
