Welcome to our Sensual Bachata dance classes
Bachata is a musical genre and dance that originates in the Dominican Republic.
Dominican Bachata is the original Bachata dance. It doesn’t contain many turn patterns but has a good deal of footwork and a bouncy feel. As the Bachata dance migrated to the USA and Europe, it evolved and developed.
First into Bachata Moderna, which retained some traditional Bachata elements, but was heavily influenced by Tango and Bolero. It contained more upper-body movements and more highly accentuated lower-body styling.
Then into Bachata Sensual which retained the same basic 3 step + tap pattern as Moderna but added many whole-body fluid and stylistic movements such as body waves as well as shoulder, rib-cage and hip isolations.
In DanceDifferent we mainly focus on Bachata Sensual, which is the most popular Bachata dance in Prague. But we also dive into and have dedicated classes to teach it’s more traditional styles.
