An authentic Bachata chasse basic as taught by a woman from the Dominican Republic - with some play steps thrown in.
The dance steps start about a minute into the video. Once the video loads, you can drag the slider to the 07:50 min. point in order to skip the introduction.
The comments are in Spanish. For non-Spanish speakers, the style, attitude and footwork are important to observe. Bachata dancing started in the poorer sections of the Dominican Republic. You will notice that the dancer footwear or the room's floor does not concern the dancer.
