If you spend any time on the streets or in the nightclubs of the Dominican Republic, you’ll catch a first-hand glimpse of just how important dancing is to the culture here. There’s something about the tropical air and saucy beats of the native music that get your hips swaying—regardless of whether you’re a Dominican Republican by blood or by choice.

In this video from Watch Mojo, you can take a quick lesson in the Bachata, a native Dominican Republic dance that is similar to the Salsa but much easier for beginners. The number one rule of any DR dance is to not be shy, so the more you practice, the more fun you’ll have once you finally hit the warm, sunny streets!
