Tuesdays are generally accepted as being the worst day of the week, joining a Bachata class that is focused on your growth and learning will fix that. True happiness comes from growth, learning and mastery in a community.

𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝗕𝗮𝗰𝗵𝗮𝘁𝗮?
Bachata is a Latin dance originating in the Dominican Republic and can be danced as a higher energy partner dance (Traditional), incorporate movements from other dances like Salsa/Zouk (Moderna/Urban) or intimate (Sensual)

Our course will give you a strong foundation to move you forwards in predominantly Modern, Urban and Sensual styles.

𝗪𝗵𝘆 𝗰𝗵𝗼𝗼𝘀𝗲 𝗕𝗮𝗰𝗵𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗳𝘆 𝘁𝗼 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗱𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗷𝗼𝘂𝗿𝗻𝗲𝘆?

Here are 𝗷𝘂𝘀𝘁 3 things that will make our beginners course different:

1.The teachers will dance with everyone in the room within the class & socially so you are getting feedback to speed your development.

2.We run just 1 class in a room at a time, meaning you don't have to listen to another teacher trying to talk over your lesson.

3.We will provide you with annotated videos with guidance on how to perform each movement.

𝗔𝗡𝗗 a full refund if you are not happy with the course.

When you attend our classes you'll find many other reasons that set our class apart from other dance schools.


Charlie & Victoria make a super pair of dance teachers. It’s great having Charlie on hand to demonstrate the finer points of leading & Victoria to demonstrate the finer points of following. This means that whatever your bachata goals are, I’m sure they’ll be able to help you achieve them.
I can safely say that if they can teach this old dog some new tricks, then they’ll be able to teach anyone!


Thanks Charlie and Victoria, really enjoyed this evenings session, feeling that things are starting to come together!
