Bachata is a form of music and dance that originated in the countryside and rural neighborhoods of the Dominican Republic.  The romantic music is usually based on dramatic tales of heartbreak and forsaken love. The beat is much slower than Salsa or Cha Cha but extremely sensual and sexy.

Like Cha Cha, Bachata can be danced to both Latin, Latin Pop and Contemporary pop. In Latin Dance Clubs, it is often played between Salsa sets.  It is a great addition to your repertoire. and can make you look like a savvy Latin Dance expert!

At the Sonata Room, we offer a Bachata class every session. To learn more about our Bachata Class Schedule check here.

Classes can be purchased singly or in a set of five for a discount. For those who want to jump in with both feet, not a bad idea for any serious dancer, we also offer a monthly rate. And, if your goal is to learn quickly, we recommend a blend of classes and private lessons. To learn more about our fee schedule please check here.


We suggest that you take at least three classes to get a sense of our teaching style. We have found that it takes about twelve classes to develop some proficiency with the basic foot work.
