Bachata is a style of social dance from the Dominican Republic which is now danced all over the world.
It is connected with bachata music. Dance moves or step variety strongly depend on the music (such as the rhythms played by the different instruments), setting, mood, and interpretation. Unlike salsa, bachata dance does not usually include many turn patterns.
From the late 1990s and onward, dancers in the Western world started creating novel dance forms inspired by bachata music. The most well-known example of this is the made-up basic step commonly referred to as the “side to sidestep”, which is sometimes accompanied by an exaggerated “pop” of the hips during the tap. These novel western dance forms were mostly created copying dance moves from other partner dances of various origins, Latin and non-Latin alike. Many such dances exist today, with the first of these often referred to as “Western side basic step”.
What is Salsa?

In New York City. Salsa is an amalgamation of Cuban dances that were popular in the ballrooms and nightclubs of Havana and New York City and by the end of the 1950s as well as American jazz dances. It was primarily developed by Puerto Ricans and Cubans living in New York in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Different regions of Latin America and the United States (Including countries in the Caribbean) have distinct salsa styles of their own, such as Cuban, Puerto Rican, Colombian, and “New York styles”.
