Dance with Style HK - Bachata Classes & Courses

Classes For Absolute Beginners, Improver, Intermediate/Advance Level

Event Details

Course Introduction

Have you always fancied learning how to dance Bachata (a simple, sensuous dance originating from the Dominican Republic). Later a newer style called “Modern/Sensual Style” was developed probably from around 2005 on the “Traditional” style base. The basics are the same as the traditional style “Bachata”, but with added dance elements and styling from “Salsa”, “Tango”, “Zouk-Lambada”, “Ballroom” etc. We will teach you a mix of both traditional as well as modern/Sensual style so as to prepare you to lead and follow any Bachata style. This bachata dance class is essential for becoming a well rounded Latin dancer, and to get you ready to step onto any Salsa Club Night with ease, knowing you’re ready to get close and sexy when the beautiful Bachata music comes on. PLEASE WEAR MASK TO OUR CLASSES! Hand Sanitisers will be provided or you could wash your hands with soap in the dance studio bathroom.

Course levels

Absolute Beginner Level: You will learn essential Bachata steps, in a relaxed and fun environment. No Prior dancing experience is required. Students start with a warm-up that teaches the basic steps and simple turns. It’s definitely all about hips and attitude! If you are not confident to move up to the next level after completing this level then feel free to talk to your instructor as we are well aware that some people are able to progress more quickly, and some like to take longer in order to perfect their basics and there is no shame in repeating this level couple of times as it will definitely make you a better dancer in the long run. Lots of our students repeat this level few times before moving on to the next level.

Intermediate Level: This is the level for you if you are comfortable leading/following the moves. To enrol at this level, the participant must have attended our Bachata Absolute Beginner level classes or at least completed 2 months course at another school or have been dancing continuously for 2 months at least. Students start with a warm-up that teaches spins, footwork, and hip movement. More intricate steps  and specific turn patterns are the focus in partner-work. Emphasis is placed on how to lead/follow effectively, hip-movement and smooth body movements and transitions, which characterise this dance as the most romantic of the various Latin styles. This is the level where we sincerely request our students to stay for at least 3-4 months or more.

Advanced Level: Requires significant experience. It’s certainly not for beginners or improvers. Ideally, this is the level for those who have already completed our beginner, improver and intermediate classes or at least completed 6-8 months or more of salsa training at another school or has been dancing continuously for 6-8 months. Here more complex moves will be taught thus adding to your existing repertoire! But don’t sweat it because you’re not expected to be perfect either so don’t worry. This is the level where we sincerely request our students to stay for at least 3-4 months or as much as you like after the first 3-4 months

No partner? No worries. Dance With Style’s graceful rotation, embedded into the routines, ensures no one is left dancing alone. But if you do have a partner then they are most welcome to join our workshops too coz the more the merrier.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR – Come along wearing anything you feel comfortable in. Office wear is fine too if you are coming straight from work. Smart ‘n’ Casual for men. The sky’s the limit as far choices go for women! As far as shoes are concerned wear anything that is comfortable to you and allows you to move and spin.

Sports shoes/Sneakers are not recommended as they are designed to grip the floor and not conducive for dancing. But if you still want to wear them then it’s upto you. Any shoes which may scratch the dance floor is NOT ALLOWED.

You may also dance barefoot or with your socks only if you want. Flip flops are a NO too! Ladies are encouraged to wear heels/stilletos if they want but please make sure that the heels don’t scratch or damage the dance floor.
