Improvers Bachata

It's coming up a full year that I've been at Latin Fire, and with the finishing of SI Salsa Comp, I wanted to thank you both for all your work with me this year.

I have immensely enjoyed your lessons, and have been able to learn so much more this year than all the other years I've been dancing combined.

And completing my first competition has been such an amazing experience!

Just a little bit hooked now, looking forward to the next SISC and more!

Starting soon we will have Bachata Tuesdays!


You will be working on the fundamentals of this easy, fun to learn partner dance Bachata. Then we move quickly onto some great turn patterns to help you look fantastic on the dance floor. Bachata is easy to learn and you will quickly feel confident and want to learn more! Bachata is known for its smooth flowing, fun dance moves!

Bachata is a beautiful dance from the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean Islands. Both the music and the dance have been influenced by Cuban Bolero, The Merengue, Salsa and Cumbia. Bachata has grown and evolved over the years to keep it an awesome modern couple dance you will love!

We dance Bachata with 4 step timing (step 1,2,3, tap and 5,6,7, tap) so it is very easy and fun to learn to dance!

The class is taken by our very passionate & fun instructors Mike & Bonnie. You will simply love it!

Check out our bachata performances & class moves below!
