Bachata Dance
A simple but sensuous dance originating from the Dominican Republic, the colorful roots of Bachata are reflected both in its romantic motions and its accompanying music. Today, this suave, passionate form of dance enjoys popularity all over the world. Bachata is relatively easy for newcomers, but also allows dance masters plenty of freedom to flaunt their skills.
There are a few different sub-styles of Bachata:
Dominican Bachata, also known as original Bachata, contains a side-to-side motion and is filled with lots of footwork and freestyle moves. With more bounce than other types of Bachata, dancers alternate between the close and open positions, and do not perform many turn patterns.

Bachata Sensual Bachata. Initiated in the United States and Europe, Sensual Bachata is the most common Bachata style danced all over the world. A very romantic Bachata style, partners have a very close connection. This form also involves turn patterns and dips.

Bachata Moderna or Modern style Bachata, is the next evolution of Bachata dance that incorporates other styles of dance, as well as the concept of crosses. Bachata Moderna has much more styling, slides, intricate footwork, accentuated movement, etc.

Boogaloo or BugalĂș
(also: Shing-a-ling, Latin Boogaloo, Latin R&B) is a genre of Latin music and dance that was popular in the United States in the 1960s. Although it came to prominence after the rise of Bossa nova and was greatly influenced by the new drumbeat of modern samba, arguably one of the most remarkable influences in popular music, from the second half of the 1950s, boogaloo originated in New York City among teenage Cubans, Puerto Ricans, and others. The style was a fusion of popular African American R&B and Soul, with Mambo and Son Montuno, boogaloo employed English as well as Spanish lyrics, and entered the American mainstream primarily through the American Bandstand television program.
