Bachata

Bachata originated out of the Dominican Republic and used to be an illegal dance that one did in the privacy of their homes. This is because many saw it as a sensual dance. However, for those that enjoyed it, Bachata was also used as a form of expression as it can emanate, as quoted by Euronews, “a vector of emotions” such as “joy”, sadness, “pain”, and “suffering”.

There are different types of Bachata including Traditional Bachata, Sensual Bachata, and Modern Bachata. Traditional Bachata, originating from the Dominican Republic, can incorporate elements of the Cha-Cha; Sensual Bachata, which originates from Europe, incorporates body isolations and body movements such as body waves; and Modern Bachata, which originates from New York, incorporates many urban movements.
