Bachata dancing at Red Hat Salsa


Bachata for Beginners....

Let us know if you're interested in Bachata and we'll inform you of future Bachata events (with an occasional email)

 What is Bachata?

Bachata is another latin dance, which is very accessible if you are learning Salsa, as the Bachata Basic Step is the same as the 'Side to Side' step in Salsa, and Bachata is danced more simply than Salsa, with fewer moves. So you can easily pick up a few of the basics in a single workshop, and you are ready to go, and can enjoy dancing Bachata when we play it in the post-class dancing on our regular Salsa nights etc. Bachata music is slower than Salsa, which makes it easy to learn, and gives variety.

We have an event for all levels coming up shortly...
