All videos are for “all ages”

Most videos do not need a partner, if the video has the word “partnerwork” in the title. Then you do need a partner.

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 or traditional” 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)

We have also used the description of 101 or 102, etc.. 101 being the first video of the series and the easiest one.

All video details are below.
