July 2020 Bachata 4 Week Classes For Absolute Beginners and Intermediate Level

Course Introduction

Have you always fancied learning how to dance Bachata (a simple, sensuous dance form originating from the Dominican Republic). Later a newer style called “Modern/Sensual Style” was developed probably from around 2005 on the “Traditional” style base. The basics are the same as the traditional style “Bachata”, but with added dance elements and styling from “Salsa”, “Tango”, “Zouk-Lambada”, “Ballroom” etc. We will teach you a mix of both traditional as well as modern/Sensual style so as to prepare you to lead and follow any Bachata style. These bachata dance classes is essential for becoming a well rounded Latin dancer, and to get you ready to step onto any Salsa Club Night with ease, knowing you’re ready to get close and sexy when the beautiful Bachata music comes on. PLEASE WEAR MASK TO OUR CLASSES! Hand Sanitisers will be provided or you could wash your hands with soap in the dance studio bathroom.

Course levels

Absolute Beginner Level: You will learn essential Bachata steps, in a relaxed and fun environment. No Prior dancing experience is required. Students start with a warm-up that teaches the basic steps and simple turns. It’s definitely all about hips and attitude! If you are not confident to move up to the next level after completing this level then feel free to talk to your instructor as we are well aware that some people are able to progress more quickly, and some like to take longer in order to perfect their basics and there is no shame in repeating this level couple of times as it will definitely make you a better dancer in the long run. Lots of our students repeat this level few times before moving on to the next level.

Course levels

Intermediate Level: This is the level for you if you are comfortable leading/following the moves. To enrol at this level, the participant must have attended our Bachata Absolute Beginner level classes or at least completed 2 months course at another school or has been dancing continuously for 2 months at least. Students start with a warm-up that teaches spins, footwork, and hip movement. More intricate steps  and specific turn patterns are the focus in partner-work. Emphasis is placed on how to lead/follow effectively, hip-movement and smooth body movements and transitions, which characterise this dance as the most romantic of the various Latin styles. This is the level where we sincerely request our students to stay for at least 3-4 months or more.
