Bachata Beginner Basic Steps Tutorial – Demetrio & Nicole – Bachata Dance Academy

Learn how to walk before you run

There is no Bachata without the fundamental step. Begin by standing with your feet together; then, with your left foot, take a little step to the side; and, finally, repeat with your right foot. After that, you should bring your right foot back to meet your left as you step your left foot backward. To switch sides, repeat the process with your left foot first. Make this simple process automatic by giving it plenty of practice.

Increase Your Hip Action

Sensual hip motions are a hallmark of bachata dancing. If you’re comfortable with the fundamental step, you may spice things up by changing your weight from one foot to the other as you step. Your hips should move counterclockwise when you do a sidestep. Your Bachata dance will have a silky, sensual quality if you use this step.

Make Use of Twists

You may liven up your Bachata practice by adding some twists. To do this, walk three steps to the side, then turn on the ball of your foot. You have a choice of facing left or right. Remember to walk with an erect body and tiny, precise steps.

You may now enter the dance floor with confidence thanks to these fundamental Bachata techniques. Don’t forget to enjoy yourself, keep your cool, and let the music take the wheel. Joyful jiving to you!
