3 Types of Bachata

  • Core: This is the most basic form of bachata – a modern adaptation of the original dance. It adopts many of the turn patterns common in Salsa and is built around a “side-together-side” basic step, rather than the traditional square pattern.
  • Sensual: This is the youngest of the three sub-styles. Sensual Bachata uses the same basic step pattern as Core but less complex turn patterns. It is characterized by fluid, whole-body stylistic movements such as body waves as well as shoulder, rib cage, and hip isolations.
  • Dominican Style: Of the three sub-styles, this is the closest to its authentic, original form. Unlike other adaptations, Dominican Bachata is built around a square “box-step”. It is usually danced in close partnership; the steps themselves are kept simple. This style features a smooth sway of the hips accentuated equally on every count.
