  • Dominican/Traditional Bachata: The original style of Bachata, this one involves steps that move within a small dance space, syncopated to go along with the music.


  • Western Traditional: Western traditional Bachata is more simplified. The basic dance steps were altered to be more straightforward. The move involves a 3 step side-to-side or forward-and-back basic with a tap step on the 4th beat.


  • Bachata Moderna: This type essentially is the Western traditional Bachata but infused with elements from Salsa, Tango, Zouk-lambada, and Ballroom.


  • Bachatango: A type of Bachata dance with an Argentine influence


  • Urban Bachata: Bachata dance with touches of hip-hop


  • Touch Style: A sensual fusion of Moderna and Dominican Bachata


  • Bachata Sensual: Made popular in Spain, Bachata Sensual is a fusion between dance and theater. The dance is an interpretation of the music, along with circular movements and body waves. The music involved has stronger beats, especially when the steps have isolations and dips.
