First things first: many people could read this post and say, HEY I SAW YOU OUT LAST WEEK. Second, I wish to be clear that bachata remains both my favorite Afro-Latin music and my favorite Afro-Latin dance (well, mambo may be tied for first these days).
Don’t show up too early though because the first class starts when the bar opens at For new dancers, the first question often asked is “Do I need to bring a partner?I have a deep love for this dance that I feel, at it’s best, is romantic, is playful, is relaxing, is exciting, is intimate, and is respectful all at the same time.Unfortunately, I find that bachata is rarely at it’s best, or near it, for me any more.(You could make similar arguments of salsa zouk and kizomba [though not swing] – but I would argue that bachata has accelerated its demand for sexiness in recent years).The leaders in the scene are not necesarily to blame. It’s just unfortunate that it’s such a predominant component of selling bachata these days.
