Hello my name is Hector Sanchez from the Santa Barbara Dance Center from the Jusbyla Dance Company and today we are going to show you how to Bachata Dance. What you are going to need to Bachata Dance is a dance partner, first of all. We are going to need dance shoes. We are going to need just about anywhere where you can dance there is a floor, a dance floor, wood floor, dirt floor, brick floor, just about anywhere where you can stand on and lastly, most importantly, you are going to need Bachata music. The first thing we are going to do in the Bachata Dance is we are going to invite our dance partner to come and dance with us. We are going to ask for her hand. We are going to get close and we are going to get into what we call the close Bachata position. I'm going to have my right hand, gentleman's right hand right behind her back by her shoulder blade, lady's left arm is going to be just right above her left shoulder and we are going to be holding our other arms, lady's right hand, gentleman's left hand and we are going to connect. We are going to be in an open, I'm sorry in a closed Bachata position but we are not going to be hugging. We are just going to be in a close position. The first thing we are going to do ladies are going to move to the right, gentleman are going to start to the left. It's going to be a three step with a little bit of a pause on the forth so there's going to be a four step dance, one, two, three, pause, one, two, three, pause, one, two, three, pause. Every time we do the pause you'll notice what we'll do. So here we go, ladies are going to start moving to the right and it's just going to be a three step move. Gentlemen are going to move to the left, again three step move and here we go and one, two, three, pause. When we pause we are going to bring our lady's left leg up, gentleman's right leg up. The gentleman's leg is going to be almost in between the lady's leg and the lady's left leg is going to be right slightly outside the gentleman's right leg. Again three steps and then we move back to the other side. One, two, three, four. Now we go to the other side, we are going to use the right hand that's behind the lady's back to move her to the other side. One, two, three, four, one, two, three, four, one, two, three, four and we move back and forth and repeat the sequence and that would be a Bachata dance, one, two, three, one, two, three, four, one, two, three, four, one, two, three, four, one, two, three, four, one, two, three, four.
