Rank #1: HD: Lesson 3: Bachata (in High Definition)

Podcast cover
Read more
Now it’s time to really kick it into high gear on the dance floor. The Bachata takes some of its cues from other Latin dances, but it’s a unique dance unto itself. Remember, much of Latin dance is connected to “feeling the rhythm.” So listen to the music, and let it move you across the floor.

En esta lección se aprenderá hacer el paso básico o balanceado – un paso para adelante o para atras que lleva su peso ligeramente, balanceandose hacia donde empezó. Es rápido, asi que use pasos ligeros y transfiere unicamente el peso necesario para que se levante el otro pie. Entre los pasos de balanceado, muevese rapidamente los pies para completar el triple paso. Se puede contar 1, 2 (para el paso básico), despues cha- cha- cha (para el triple paso).
