Level 1

Level 1 is about getting to know the basics of bachata and what bachata music is. We focus on the basic dancing techniques and learn how to dance with a partner. You learn patterns like the Bonita, the Hammerlock and many more. The bachata is about connecting with the music and your partner. With the fundamentals in this course you will be able to dance with everyone. You don’t need to bring a partner. Just put on your most comfortable clothing and shoes and join the course!

Level 2

Besides adding more basic patterns, we focus in level 2 on combining the individual patterns into a mini choreo that you can use during social dancing. In addition, you will learn different leading/following techniques and some man- and lady-styling. Furthermore, you will learn a bit of footwork and how to connect with your dance partner during all facets of a song. This will develop an awereness of musicality that you can apply for instance to the intro of a song. You will advance beyond the basic sideways 1, 2, 3, tap and will be able to apply a broad scale of techniques that will prepare you for a full night of dancing.
