The Bachata has roots in the Merengue, Salsa, Cumbia, and Cuban Bolero. It originated in the Dominican Republic with Bachata music sometime during the early 20th century, but since the music was often censored, much of the history of the dance is unknown. It did not gain worldwide recognition until around 2000, when the music became trendy in Latin dance circles.
When to Dance the Bachata
The Bachata can be danced solo, in a two-hand hold, or in a close or open embrace. Because of the different options, it is the perfect dance for clubs, bars, and even special events. More traditional Bachata music is still around, but Bachata beats can be found in genres like Hip Hop, Pop, and R&B.
