Out of the diverse folk dance denomination, Latin dance forms are very famous. Typically, when it comes to partner dancing. Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba… all these are examples of Latin dance forms. Bachata comes all the way from Republic of Dominica. It is the second largest nation of the Carribean after Cuba. Although, Latin Bachata is often used in combination with other dance forms today and performed as fusion. It is in actual a very authentic form. We are glad to have found a Bachata teacher who not only perform authentic Bachata but also have teaching experience of the same. Just like Salsa it has a music genre of its own and its called Bachata and it is also a popular couple dance. Yes, even here there is a leader and follower- the leader leads the dance and the follower follows.
Is there any difference between Salsa and Bachata?
Apart from Bachata not being a sauce! Yes, there are still lots of other differences. To start with, the music genre is different. It has very little rotations or twirls when compared to Salsa. They have their similarities, as they share the same footwork and some other things, but then they have differences too. For it to be a separate dance form, bet the differences must be huge. Bachata dance is a more relaxed way of dancing and it feels flawless to the eyes, very soothing. While Salsa is more rapid and exciting. Being originated in the rural areas of the island does not make Bachata any less popular. Bachata basics are a little different too, it does not end with the third step like Salsa, it also has a tap. Differences might sound slight for now, but you can clearly differentiate Bachata from Salsa, even without a great deal of dancing knowledge. You know its Bachata when its 1,2,3… and a grandeur tap. Just as simple! If we discuss in the depths there are many differences, but they can be better understood when witnessed than written.
Most of the Bachata moves were performed initially by holding the partner very close, without moving apart. All the moves where danced just within a square frame. With evolution lots of improvisations came into being and now it is more like any other Latin dance form. Both open and close positions are put to equal use. Open or close in Bachata you are always in an embrace. Romantic, isn’t? As this is a social dance, venue of performance can vary from ballrooms to restaurants. You can add a bit of Bachata to every event. Sometimes, you don’t even need a venue for Bachata, you just drop it you’re your partner in the dining room.
