Bachata- This style of romantic dance originated in the Dominican Republic and is danced widely all over the world. The basics to the dance are three-step followed by a tap including a hip movement on the 4th beat, in accordance with Bachata music which has an accent in rhythm at every fourth count. The knees should be slightly bent so the performer can sway the hips easier. Dance moves, or step variety, during performance strongly depends on the music (such as the rhythms played by the different instruments), setting, mood, and interpretation. Unlike Salsa, Bachata dance does not usually include complex turn patterns but they are used more and more as the dance evolves.
