Sabor Latino Dance Workshop: Bachata Edition


Join the Latino Student Association as we celebrate Latino culture through the teaching of Bachata dancing. This Dance Workshop is part of a series of dance workshops hosted by LSA.

Bachata originated in the Dominican Republic by Jose Manuel Calder in the early parts of the 20th century with the European, Indigenous and African descendants in the country and spread to other parts of Latin America and Mediterranean Europe. It became widely popular in the countryside and the rural neighborhoods of the Dominican Republic. Its subjects are often romantic; especially prevalent are tales of heartbreak and sadness. The original term used to name the genre was amargue (“bitterness”, “bitter music”, or “blues music”), until the rather ambiguous (and mood-neutral) term bachata became popular. The form of dance, bachata, also developed with the music.

 We advise all participants to wear comfortable shoes and clothing, and bring water.
