Bachata is a very sensual style of dance that originated in the Dominican Republic. The basics to the dance are three-steps with a Cuban hip motion, followed by a tap with a hip “pop” on the 4th beat. Unlike Salsa, Bachata does not usually include complex turn patterns, because most of the movement comes from the lower body. The close connection is part of the soul of this steamy dance.
