What is bachata?
Bachata is a rhythmic couple dance with soft movements, which has become incredibly popular in Denmark within the last 10 years. Originally, the style of bachata that we dance at home originates from the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean, but the way we dance it today does not have much in common with the original Dominican Bachata besides the music, some footwork and a few twists.
On a daily basis, a distinction is made between the styles: Bachata Fusion, Sensual or the original Dominican. Bachata is characterized by quieter music than e.g. Salsa. Bachata Fusion / Sensual is in many ways also more romantic, present and sensual. Both dance in an open position, but you often also get very close to your partner, where many experience that they go into a form of dance symbiosis with their partner. In Casa Bailar we dance a good mix of Bachata Fusion and Bachata Sensual.
