An example of Bachata dancing. Ataca & La Alemana are supposed to be the best bachata dancers, or so I've read. Sometimes people do bachata at my local latin club, and I'm hopeless at it! I'm like a stiff scarecrow. When I get time I'll practise the hip movement in front of a mirror.
Bachata Bachata is a style of dance that originated in the Dominican Republic. It is danced widely all over the world but not identically. The basics to the dance are two-steps with a Cuban hip motion, followed by a tap including a hip movement on the 4th beat.
