Any word after the rhythm refers to a style of dancing that one rhythm. “Core” represents our main curriculum of that rhythm at our dance studio, “Sensual” is a modern style of dancing Bachata & “Dominican” refers to a more traditional style of dancing Bachata.

The letters in the title A, B or C, represents the general level of the class following our studio classes format. A = beginners (1-6 months of dancing experience), B = Intermediate (6-12 months) & C = advanced (12-18 months of experience)
