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: 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 in collaboration with many artists such as Fernando Javier Ania Hernandez (a Dominican raised in Spain, maestro of bachata in South West), our beautiful partners Victoria Fletcher (with lifetime dancing experience in ballroom now also an international teacher and an official partner of JOJO Kizomba #letsplaykizomba - one of the best Urbankiz/Kizomba Fusion artists in the world!), Sandra Sanchez Ligero (lifetime experience in dancing flamenco, bachata and kizomba - born and bred in Cadiz, where bachata sensual was created) and Nadia Pro (professional dancer from Italy, you will see her in major carnivals and events throughout the south west). We also guest teach at variety of events from South West of England all the way to Auckland New Zealand, and have been teaching at some of the biggest festivals: Bachaddiction Scotland festival in Edinburgh alongside Daniel y Desiree (one of the most famous artists in bachata world), OneDance Festival in London, Tropical Summer Festival and many others. Our mission also includes organising unique masterclasses, lady styling workshops, inviting guest teachers and soon throwing new unique massive monthly bachata parties and festivals. We are proud to deliver what Bristol scene has been craving for in the last years and we are happy to finally put Bristol on the map as one of the major bachata stops in the UK!

Great and a bit challenging for the beginners but there are always some cool moves to learn for the higher levels! Loved it!
I finally figured out how to do a proper body role!
Lots of interesting tips and tricks were taught.
Always a great dance class.
Great teachers, my favourite music, very friendly atmosphere.
It was a great class for isolation techniques.
It's the best it can be if you like dancing Bachata!:)
