Learn Bachata Dance Style- A 3 Week Series

May 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Rochambeau Library – Community Room

Bachata

Dance instructor Brandon Contreras specializes in bachata and Kizomba and he will have you moving to the music in no time! He likes to teach using traditional style bachata music but also showcases more current versions of the genre to bridge the generations, from teens to seniors.

The Bachata dance style comes from the Dominican Republic, where the music was also born.  Inspired by the Bolero, Bachata adds syncopation and other variations depending on the dancer’s mood and the character of the music. The Original Dominican Bachata is danced today all over the Caribbean, speeded up to synch with faster music, adding more footwork, turns/figures and rhythmic free style moves.

This class is being taught in 3 sessions- May 2, 9 & 16. Each session will build on what students learned the previous week.
