Bachata sensual is becoming ever more popular and is now arguably the most-danced style of bachata in the world. It is a unique form of bachata that has captured the imagination of millions. In traditional bachata, you dance in a close embrace using a 3-step-tap square configuration. Bachata sensual plays on this theme and is more interpretative. There is the opportunity to dance in an open style as well as closed, and it can include circular movements, body waves, dips, and isolation movements. People appreciate the increased opportunity for creativity, the ability to modify the dance in order to interpret the music, as well as the chance to be more expressive. And this video is a great example of the creativity, imagination, and style that can be achieved with bachata sensual. Hopefully, it will inspire you!
