🗓 FEBRUARY 14th BACHATA with GERALDO IGLESIAS
The Traditional Bachata Style is the most common way of dancing Bachata. This style is sensual and sexy, with lots of body connection and hip movement. As Bachata rhythm is a 4/4 music, the steps go 4 steps to the left and 4 steps to the right. On the 4th step, there is a hip movement or tap, a main characteristic of this style. One-two-three-and-hip.
