Group classes at Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Scottsdale are always fun and engaging, but on Friday night, Jan. 29, our class will go in an exciting direction that we are sure you will like.
We are taking you on a dancing adventure with one of the more sensual dances – and a hot new trend – the Bachata. We’ll be teaching it at 5:45 p.m. at the studio. You simply must be here for this!
Bachata is a dance from the Dominican Republic. The music and the dance have roots in Cuban Bolero, the Merengue (also of Dominican Republic origin), Salsa and Cumbia. Bachata music has four beats per measure. In Bachata dancing, the dancer takes three steps to four beats of music. As with Salsa, the step timing is three steps and then a one-beat pause. Bachata does not typically include complex turn patterns, because most of the movement comes from the lower body. The close connection is part of the soul of this steamy dance!
