Bachata Classes Playa Del Carmen

Group or Private Bachata Classes in Playa del Carmen

Many social dancing events in Playa del Carmen have a group Bachata class. These classes can be overwhelming to beginner Bachata dancers as the class will typically include intermediate Bachata steps and may be taught in Spanish only. We also ensure you learn the importance of proper technique, which is missed in group classes that lack individual attention. With our private Bachata class, you will start by understanding the rhythm and timing of the music to become comfortable using your basic step. More basic Bachata steps will be added as you progress at your own pace. These steps include: inside/outside turns, 2-hand turns, hammer-lock, and DePaseo. Our Bachata class is taught in Spanish or English.

Bachata Dancing Styles

There are 3 styles of Bachata; Dominican, Moderna, and Sensual. Of these styles, Dominican Bachata is the closest to its traditional form. It's based around a square pattern as you do simple steps in close proximity with your dance partner. Moderna Bachata uses a side-to-side basic step instead of a square and has adopted common Salsa turns. Moderna Bachata also introduced more upper body movements while accentuating more lower body styling. Sensual Bachata is the newest style which is similar to Moderna Bachata. The difference is the addition of a more fluid motion that matches the dynamics of the music. Sensual Bachata uses whole-body movements like waves, as well as isolations. The Bachata social dancing events in Playa del Carmen are typically geared towards Sensual Bachata.
