Bachata is a popular style of dance that originated in the Dominican Republic. It is typically performed as a partner dance, with one person leading and the other following. However, there is a growing trend of it being performed as a solo dance, especially among women, which is commonly referred to as “Bachata Lady Style” or “Bachata Femenina”. Check out this video from Valeriia Nenakhova as an example:
Bachata Lady Style is characterized by smooth, fluid movements and intricate footwork usually danced to the same songs as traditional Bachata. This style is typically performed by women, who use shimmies, shivers, and undulations to accentuate the movement of their hips and add a sensual element to the dance.

The focus of Bachata Lady Style is on the dancer’s own body movements and expression. It’s a way for women to express their femininity and grace on the dance floor. The dancer tends to perform more on isolation, musicality and taking on poses for a moment, making it elegant and unique.
It is important to note that traditional Bachata is a partner dance and is still widely performed and enjoyed in the Latin dance community. Bachata Lady Style is not intended to replace the traditional version of this dance, but rather to offer an alternative for women who prefer to dance solo or who want to add a new dimension to their style. It is a new and exciting variation, that emphasizes the woman’s role. It is sensual and intimate. Requires good body control, proper technique, and a strong focus on rhythm and form.

It’s a dance style that is not just to show off, but also to empower and give self-confidence to women and also to men who enjoy dancing in a more sensual, expressive way.
