In Cuban based rhythms, the strong beats are on 1 and 3. L.A. style is danced on 1, in a slot. It is strongly influenced by the Mambo, Swing and Argentine Tango styles of dancing. L.A. style emphasizes sensuousness, theatricality, aerobics, and most importantly, musicality. The two essential elements of this dance are the forward/backward basic as described above, and the cross-body lead. In this pattern, the leader steps forward on 1, steps to the right on 2-3 while turning 90 degrees counter-clockwise (facing to the left). The follower then steps forward on 5-6, and turns on 7-8, while the leader makes another 90 degrees counter-clockwise. After these 8 counts, the leader and follower have exchanged their positions.
The L.A. style as it is known today was pioneered by what many consider some of the most famous and influential people in dance. Albert Torres, Laura Canellias and Joe Cassini rightfully deserve much of the credit for the early development and growth of L.A. Style Salsa. Later, such dancers as Alex Da Silva, Edie Lewis, Joby Martinez, Thomas Montero, Rogelio Moreno, Josie Neglia, Liz Rojas, Francisco Vazquez and Janette Valenzuela are often credited with developing the L.A. style of Salsa Dancing as we know it today.
Bachata is a style of dance that originated in the Dominican Republic. It is danced widely in Latin America and select regions of Europe and the United States.
The dance is a four-step beat achieved with a "walking" Cuban hip motion, and a unique "pop". The dance is performed both in open position and closed position depending on the music, setting and mood of the partners. Similar to Merengue, dips are not original to the dance and turns are done infrequently. Leads direct the follows with subtle communication using pushing and pulling on the hands to guide the direction in which to move or to hint on upcoming turns. The follow may also provide communication using their left hand to indicate whether or not they are comfortable dancing in a closed position.
The Fusion Styles developed in US and Europe (Traditional, Modern, Bachatango, BachaBallroom) is a basic dance sequence of a full 8 count in a side-to-side motion. The Original Dominican style basic dance sequence is a full 8 count moving within a square. Counts 1 through 3 and 5 through 7, when taken, generate a natural hip motion. Counts 4 and 8, consists of a “pop” movement. Depending on individual style, the 'pop' is executed by lifting or tapping a foot or by using stylish footwork while popping the hip to the side opposite of the natural Cuban hip motion. Bachata music has a slight accent in rhythm at every fourth count, indicating when the 'pop' should happen. The 'pop' is done in the opposite direction of the last step, while the next step is taken on the same direction of the pop. The dance direction interchanges after every 4th count.
