Sensual bachata was created in Cádiz, Andalusia, Spain, by Korke Escalona and Judith Cordero. Korke learned the basics of bachata in 1998; then he started developing his own dance style by understanding how the leader (traditionally a man) could lead the body of the follower (traditionally a woman) to interpret the music. Sensual bachata is an independent dance form with strict lead and follow principles. The dance is an interpretation of the music with mostly circular movements and body waves. When the music has stronger beats, however, the dance also uses isolations and dips. ABOUT US: Main instructor: Jan Tabaka is a fitness trainer, acrobatics instructor and Thai yoga masseuse during the day and latin dancer at night 🙂 Jan, has founded Bristol Bachata school after 7yrs of bachata sensual dancing experience following masterclasses of Korke & Judith (creators of bachata sensual) and many other top teachers in the world. His passion for bachata music has lead him to create a very unique never done before Bristol Bachata project lately featured on BBC The One Show and now widely recognised as one of the major dancing spots in the UK. Bristol Bachata offers weekly Mon and Wed classes, private classes, events hire and big monthly parties. You will also find us guest teaching at many major cities and big festivals all over the UK and also internationally (Spain, Turkey, Dubai and more).
