Format: DVD
To offer some context for this review, I study approximately 30 types of partnered dancing, focusing on lead-and-follow social dancing rather than choreographies. My library now includes a large collection of dance training videos, many of which I've worked-through. I am particularly interested in the teaching/learning process or pedagogy of dance instruction. I've studied partnered dances with dozens of dance teachers. Sadly, my assessment is that the majority of dance teachers may be excellent dancers, but are exceedingly poor teachers. This assessment also extends to dance training videos. The instructors who recorded this video stand as a refreshing contrast; this is a training video of outstanding quality. What makes this training video outstanding?
1 Both instructors teach! In most training videos, only one instructor teaches (usually the male) and the other partner is mute.
2 In this video, the instructors teach both to the men and the women. In most other training videos, instructors teach nearly only to the male and neglect or even ignore teaching women the dance skills which they need.
3 Both of these instructors teach outstandingly well. By "well", I mean that all of the little technical details of how to actually successfully dance together with a partner are explained, including dance floor etiquette, how to lead the partner to move, how to follow the lead's (man's) moves, where the muscular tensions must be applied, how to hold the partner and much more. I have never seen another dance training video containing so many of these details.

Now this dvd is great. I have been doing ballroom and latin for a few months but I pick up dance steps very easily, perhaps because of this I tend to lean to dvd's that give me alarge volume of patterns even if the instruction is not detailed cause I can figure out what is being done. That said bachata is a dance that I was having a little more trouble with in terms of technique, so this DVD was very very good. I liked the instructors, they took their time and even gave you simple alternatives to use until you could actually get that ever so important 'triple hip' that the bachata is famous for. Now I plan to get the second dvd to learn even more patters to broaden my repertoire. In short...buy this!!

Being a Latina, I've always watched different ones in my family try to "do" the bachata, but I wanted to "really" learn it. This video is a wonderful start. The instruction is very simple. I'm not a natural born dancer, but after this video I got a little more confidence and an appreciation for the actual techniques. I would recommend this video to anyone that wants to learn it the right way, and not just bits and pieces of it.

I really liked this video set. I'm just now starting to learn different dance stuff and this was really good. It was easy to follow and the instructors are great. One of them is actually from the Dominican Republic which is very appropriate since this is a dominican dance. Actually, I thought it was interesting how they told a bit of history about the dance also. I learned a lot of the techniques of Bachata and felt really good about it. I highly recommend this video set for anyone that wants to learn proper dance techniques for the bachata.

Format: DVD
Volume 1 of this series moves at an easy to follow pace. There's not much covered in terms of breadth but that's not a big deal if you plan on getting the other DVD's of this series. Each pattern is covered as a demo, a break down, tips and finally danced to music. In terms of delivery, I much prefer the style of Evan from the learning Salsa DVD's. I found the outfit of the lady instructor distracting in that it really masked the hip movements. I would have much preferred if she were in a pair of jeans. Secondly she gets quite annoying when it comes to the "stationary basic" where one moves their hips while dancing in place. Everytime she does that does she have to go overboard by saying "oooh, this is my favorite part", "ahhhh, work it", "lets go to town with it", "grove it"? The male instructor is pretty good but their overall delivery is a little too soft-spoken and artificial. While I cannot strongly not recommend it, I will be on the lookout for other Bachata instructional DVD's as well.
