"Bachata is a social couple dance with a lead and follow that can be performed in open, semi-closed or closed position. The basic step involves an eight-count side-to-side movement, with many variations and styles that can be added. On counts 4 and 8, Bachata includes an exaggerated hip check that gives it a characteristic look." Wikipedia.

Enjoy the energetic East Coast Swing, the exciting Cha Cha, the romantic Rumba, the graceful Waltz, and the hot & fast Salsa. No more sitting on the sidelines at receptions, nightclubs, wineries, or charity events. Ballroom can be danced to all types of music and bands.
