Bachata - for some reason speaks to the lady in me and makes me feel Smile

Anyone who knows me knows I love this dance style - the flow, sensuality, stylization and did I forget - sexy as all else Wink

When I first started dancing this style I had lots of questions about this dance - such as:

    Where did it come from?
    How did it evolve?
    How many styles/types of bachata are there?
    And how do they differ

Bachata evolved in the Domenican Republic, from the streets and the slums to mainstream over time. For a history of it's evolution see the following site:http://www.ehow.com/about_5079472_bachata.html

Types of bachata:

    bachata-bolero
    cabaret bachata
    sexual double entendre bachata
    tecno-bachata
    frontier bachata
    romantic bachata
    vallenato and bachata
    New York School style of bachata


I have not been able to find samples of all types but when I do, I will update this post with the video links!

With bachata, like any type of dance form you are learning - it's important to play with the style and make it your own. What are some things you have done to personalize your bachata dancing?
