Today I will tell you about my passion for Latin Dances and especially Salsa and Bachata! 💗
I practiced these two dances for about 2 years. Here is a presentation of these two Latin dances and their origin. And I have a little surprise just for you my beloved followers!
Salsa (spicy sauce in Spanish) is a popular music style that originated in the Hispanic community of New York in the mid-1970s, as a result of the musical evolution of various Latin rhythms.
Salsa is a blend of Afro-Cuban and Puerto Rican music enriched with rock and jazz. She is dancing as a couple and differently depending on the country and the influences. For example in New York and Cuba, we do not dance the same salsa!
Bachata is nothing like salsa! It's a romantic music from the Dominican Republic.
Appeared in the disadvantaged neighborhoods of Santo Domingo, during the 1960s, bachata conquered the Dominican population in the 1990s.
An orchestra of bachata includes synthesizers, percussion instruments, a bass and, especially, a guitar with a very high pitch. It is this last instrument that gives a unique sound to bachata.
It is characterized by romantic melodies, with often hot lyrics... in the good old macho latina tradition!
Like salsa, bachata is also danced as a couple where the man leades. Depending on the country, bachata is danced differently! If you go to Santo Domingo and Barcelona, you will not dance the same bachata! ^^
Currently, I am participating in a dance congress in Lloret de Mar (Spain). I am planning on doing a series of vlogs about it!!!!
Very soon, exclusive on @flaminGirl, just for you my "queridos" followers!!! I'm soooooo excited !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😜😜😜😜😜
