Initially, bachata was a unique style that encompassed the same line of dance and musicality. However, after its international extension, its arrival in Europe, and the influence of other dance styles, bachata has been transformed.
Did you know there are different types of bachata?
Within bachata, today we find several types of bachata:
· Traditional Bachata
· Sensual Bachata
· Modern Bachata
· Dominican Bachata
· Urban Bachata
Surprised by the number of bachata types out there?
You're probably wondering what the differences are both musically and choreographically, but today we're going to focus exclusively on sensual bachata.

Korke is the creator of the Sensual Bachata style: more than 13 years ago, he wanted to express more feelings and passion while dancing bachata and began to add various body movements, isolations and other undulations to strengthen the connection and harmony between couples in the dance.
Sensual bachata is characterized by body expression and dissociation of movements. The interpretation of this music is sought through body waves (both boy and girl), hip eights and dry blows, without forgetting the narrow distance between the couple.
