Certified schoolsBachata Survival Kit

Bachata Ambassador has developed a revolutionary method to teach and learn the Dominican way or actually to transform the foreign way of dancing bachata to Dominican way. Four carefully selected workshop hours + party guide to an autentic bachata club will do the trick to help you to SURVIVE. Seriously speaking you can't learn a new dance genre in 4 hours, but you can get close enough to look like as if you would already know a lot of it :-)

Product of an extensive research

Bachata Ambassador did a 5 year research to find out the principles of the Dominican way of dancing bachata. The research included 5 Dominican cities, tens of Bachata clubs, numerous Dominican dancers, dance freaks and dance professionals. It looks like all the Dominicans dance differently and some people even clain that they don't even have common rules to dance bachata. All the couple dances have rules and ofcourse Dominican way is heavily based on the rules. Bachata Ambassador was able to open the puzzle of the rules and he noticed that there is actually (very strict rules), because their dancing is based on very limited set of dance elements. Roughly speaking there is only about 20 elements in the Dominican basic level (most of the Dominicans can do) and some 10 elements more in the advanced level (the good dominican dancers). While non-dominicans try to learn too many dance element (complicated dancing) the Dominicans invest in styling, decorations and feeling the music.

Security and responsibility issues
