The Bachata dance was said to have originated from the Dominican Republic. It is danced by couples usually in a romantic and sensual story-telling style. The Bachata dance was also, at some point, considered to be a passionate and sensual kind of expression of love through dance. It was said that the early Bachata music was created using items commonly found on one’s backyard such as garbage cans, pots, pans, and fences, among others. This is one of the reasons why the Bachata is called such because in some parts of the Dominican Republic, bachatarefers to trash. Nowadays, electric instruments, particularly electric guitars, are used to create Bachata music accompanied vocals.
