Why I don’t dance bachata anymore (or, the real problems with sensual bachata)

I stumbled across this article that perfectly describes how I feel about what is happening to Bachata. I’m more of a traditionalist, enjoying the fun footwork, playfulness and connection of Bachata. I also love the Bachata Tango Fusion that Wendy and Rodrigo (see photo) of RW Latin Dance (Charlotte NC) teach.

Do not try to contort my body into uncomfortable or ridiculously intimate positions because I immediately go into survival mode, ESPECIALLY if I don’t know you because I don’t trust you yet. Instructors, please be more responsible in teaching these dances. At the very least,  let your students know that there is a time and a place for everything.
