Bachata is a smooth and sexy partner dance originating from the Caribbean region, more specifically, the Dominican Republic with borrowings from the Cuban Bolero.
Today Bachata has undertaken dramatic changes from the very traditional sound of its creation to where it has merged with more contemporary styles like Jazz, R&B and Hip Hop as well as other Latin and Brazilian rhythms.
It's more apparent fusion has been with R&B - Hip Hop, producing many great influential musicians and singers such as Aventura, Romeo Santos, Toby Love, Prince Royce, Optimo & Xtreme to name a few and now also remixes of the top radio hits. You will be amazed how easy and enjoyable it is to pick up!
