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.

Meet Your Instructor

Hello! My name is Alexandria and dancing is my passion! I enjoy sharing various dance styles with others because dancing makes me feel alive, helps me build confidence, and promotes positive energy.

I started dancing in 2018 and have since then, taught classes, performed, and increased my skills via attending various workshops and classes. My favorite dance style is Brazilian Zouk, however I also dance Kizomba and Bachata.
