Bachata Dance Classes

You may have visited a Salsa club and noticed the dancers dancing a slightly different dance to music that has a slower Caribbean island sound. These dancers would most likely be dancing the Bachata. The Bachata is known for its slow and sexy styling which is quite different from energetic and dynamic Salsa dancing.

The Bachata is very easy to learn and it is a great dance to add to your Latin dance repertoire.

Our Bachata classes are taught by our Latin dance expert who specializes in Bachata and all of the other Latin dances. His knowledge and passion for Bachata combined with his fun and easy to follow teaching style is what makes our Bachata classes a favorite!

What is Bachata Dancing?

The Bachata dance originated in the Dominican Republic. It is danced widely all over the world but not identically. The basics of the dance are step-step-step with Cuban hip motion followed by a tap step using a slight hip movement on the 4th beat.

By Your Side is the best dance studio. The teachers are fantastic dancers and excellent instructors. They strive for excellence, precision, and elegance, and do so with great encouragement and motivation. I always leave dance class feeling wonderful!


We worked with Laura to choreograph our wedding dance. We started out with zero moves and no confidence but after four sessions we were tearing up the floor and having the time of our lives.
