This video was taken at the 3rd Belarus Bachata Festival. We show 2 Bachata tricks that are fun to do. The first one is tricky due to the arms locks that are used. The second Bachata trick is a lift.
We always recommend that you try these type of things in a class setting or with someone that already has some experience and can help you with it.
But if you want to try these type of Bachata tricks, or any for that matter, by yourself, there are several things you need to consider:
Once you master the move or lift, consider this: every partner is different, so even if you think you have it!, start slow again if you try with someone that does not know!. That applies also for women. We see some women that “trusts” the partner and jumps without them being ready!. Not good!
Now, what about the rhythm? Some Bachata tricks, specifically these two, don”t have any specific timing. You can break the time and do it as fast or as slow as you want. As long as you get back into the timing when you finish the move and go back to the basic.
Keep it safe and have lots of fun!!
