Bachata (A term that literally translates to “party”) is a social dance originating from the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean during the 1960s.

Often referred to as the most romantic of the 4 latin nightclub dances, Bachata is a fun style of dance and we pride ourselves on creating an energetic and friendly environment in which bachata dancers of all levels can enjoy this dance and music that we love so much.

This course provides a comprehensive introduction to the dance and is designed with beginner bachata dancers in mind.

Each class begins with exercises to get you moving comfortably to the Dominican rhythms and beats.

From here, we help you transition into the fundamentals.


The initial classes will introduce beginners to the basic steps in Bachata, which are performed by moving in a sideways linear direction (three steps performed with a Cuban hip motion), which is followed by a tap that is accompanied by a pop of the hip on the fourth beat.


Once you are comfortable with the movement and rhythm, we will move into variations of the basic steps, and add some simple turns.

The next level of the classes will introduce beginners to the concept of partnering and how to combine steps into patterns that can be used in a social dance setting.

Finally, we will work with you on creativity, showing you different bachata styling techniques and how to develop variations on the basic steps so as to begin to learn to develop your own style. We host private classes in addition to group sessions twice a week, where beginners can feel comfortable experimenting and developing their skills in a low pressure and friendly setting.

During the course, students will also learn the history and culture of bachata music and dance.
This will include bachata etiquette, hand placement, floor craft, and partner safety, equipping you with everything you need to get out on the dance floor!

Come learn how to move and pop those hips in our Bachata classes!



One of Heart of Dance’s most popular classes, intermediate bachata classes are designed to address three major aspects of social bachata dancing: communication, style, and technique.

Classes utilize step patterns to demonstrate the essential leading and following techniques necessary for non-verbal communication on the dance floor.

Leaders will learn how to execute steps with the appropriate signals, timing, and momentum.
Followers will learn how to respond rapidly to these signals with the appropriate body resistance and speed. The goal of this aspect of the course is to facilitate clear and seamless social dancing with a variety of dance partners.

The steps demonstrated in each class will vary, but the skills emphasized will remain the same.

The instructors will also present variations in styling that can be used with each figure.

Overall, both leaders and followers are expected to develop a social dancing technique that is comfortable, effective, and impressive.



Solo dancing techniques and figures (“open work”) will be further developed to help the dancer feel more confident on the dance floor. At the advanced level, we will focus on more complex footwork, flexibility, body movement and musicality, to fully express the rhythmic characteristics of Bachata.

Technique drills will be a routine part of each class followed by a close examination of body movement, balance, momentum, hand & arm styling, and rhythmic expression.
