Bachata, class 1 Basics (side-to-side, Front and back, in-place; half turn)
Dance Conmigo offers private and group classes.
In this video we started by covering the basic step of Bachata.
On eight count music;
1. On the basic we use four counts to go side and four counts to come back.
2. With the same idea, we use four counts to go forward and four counts to come back.
3. We did a step we called "in-place" in which we do the whole eight counts in one place with the feel spread apart to accentuate the movement of the hips.
5. Finally we did "half turn" in which we took four counts to travel to the side and four counts to do a half turn.
In future videos we will do many variations of the basic.
