Bachata | Urbanity Dance Chicago


What is Bachata?

Bachata features a close partner connection with circular and on the spot movement complemented by hip sways, body isolations, and smooth turns. It's also characterized by signature footwork consisting of rhythmic taps, slides, and syncopations.

Bachata originated in the Dominican Republic and has been influenced by dance forms such as merengue, bolero, and more recently, tango, hip hop, and Zouk.

Bachata is booming in Chicago currently, especially the trending sub-style, Bachata Sensual. There's many opportunities in the city to social dance and perform Bachata. You'll have a whole new social calendar! Not only are there many social opportunities, Bachata will help improve coordination, body awareness, and musicality.
