Bachata dancing was created in the Dominican Republic during the mid-1900s. The dance was a combination of Cuban son dance, African beats, and bolero music. It originally focused on loss and heartbreak, mainly being performed on street corners and bars in impoverished neighborhoods. For this reason, the bachata had a poor reputation. At the time, the country’s dictator, Rafael Trujillo, also publicly denounced the dance as being low-class.

When Trujillo was assassinated in the early 1960s, however, the dance became popular due to a greater sense of freedom within the country. 20 years later, the dance spread to the U.S. when many Dominicans immigrated over. The dance quickly became a hit and is still performed widely today.
