Flexible Scheduling: We know that you are busy. Sometimes it is difficult to squeeze everything you want to do in 24 hours. Well, actually less, considering we need to sleep sometime. According to research, lack of time is the number ONE reason people give for not dancing. Our Private Bachata Dance Lessons are designed to be flexible to schedule. You have time Tuesday morning at 11am? We can do it. Thursday afternoon? Not a problem. Friday evening? Sure. We are here to help aligning your schedule with our instructors.
Learn dances that you want: Many times people start dancing by going to group dance classes. This is a great start. However, you can't always choose the dance that you want in a group setting. In private Bachata dance lessons this is not an issue. We will teach what you want to learn.
Private Environment: Not everyone feels comfortable learning to dance in a group class. There can be many reasons for that. In addition, it is more diffiuclt to focus on something new when there are other people around you. Even if they are nice, they may be distracting to your learning process. In a private Bachata dance lesson you will get undivided attention of the instructor and will be able to focus better.
Personalized Curriculum: Group dance classes are good way to get familiar with the basics of Bachata dance. However, even the best group class is geared primarily to addressing common concerns that apply to a majority of students. In a group class setting, dance instructors simply do not have enough time to address specific needs of individual students. And since everyone is unique, different people have different needs when it comes to dance. That is why it is very beneficial for students to take private Bachata dance lessons with dance instructors to get more individualized attention. You may want to think of a private dance lesson as a combination of tutoring and a personal trainer. In private Bachata dance lessons instructors have the ability to adjust teaching methods to better suit your individual needs and closely monitor your performance to address any concerns.
Bachata Moves and Steps
Bachata music has four beats per measure. In Bachata dancing, the dancer takes three steps to four beats of music. As with Salsa, the step timing is three steps and then a one-beat pause. The knees are flexed on the steps. Given its humble origins, the steps are flat footed.
The chasse basic is three steps in one direction (side-close-side-tap or touch) and the same pattern in the other direction. Nightclub dancers add a lift or hip motion on the tap/touch step. The timing if called out sounds like "one, two, three, uh; one, two, three, uh."
The walking basic is similar, with the dancers walking forward and back rather than side to side.
