Lacking DVDs of native Bachata from the Dominican Republic, bachata DVDs are produced in less likely places, like Italy, US and Australia. This one comes from Australia, and the producers will make sure you are fully aware of it, dancing against a printed background of the Sydney skyline and iconic Opera House.
It contains everything that is needed for going from ‘I have never danced before’ to executing a decent Bachata, given your will to practice of course. The instructors have made an effort: the DVD is fairly long, they spend time on body movement and body isolation, and in the partner connection within the dance. They also provide many moves and combinations though several are little more than variations of the basic steps. It may not be useful if you dance Bachata already, but it may be of benefit if you have never tried.
Instructions are given by 2 couples, including two SalsaIsGood friends and collaborators Jordan (Feelin’Merengue) and Oren (Salsa with the Stars), so you may see different interpretations; given that Bachata is spreading fast, and developing quickly I suppose that style does not necessarily need to be ‘dominican’, and this Australia version will enable you to get going
