BP Team

Bachata Passion Dance Company consists of multiple teams at the moment with 46 dancers in total. A diverse, fun, motivated, kind of crazy and energetic group of people that together are one big BP family.

The learning never stops. Bachata Passion has several performance teams, all at different levels or with a different focus. Each team practices to learn a choreography made specifically for them.
During the practices you will not only learn the choreograhpy, but you will be trained in your bachata techniques, footworks, partnerwork, performance skills, musicality and bodymovement.
Being part of a Bachata Passion performance team will therefore not only make you a better performer, but will also really help you to improve in your social dancing.

Take your dancing career to the next level and become a Bachata performer. You can start by training in one of our student teams and then continue to grow to our Semi-Pro and Pro-teams. The weekly practices with your team will help you to develop as a dancer both in performing and social dancing.

Bachata Passion is not only focussed on the personal development of their team members, but also on the continuous development of Bachata dancing. Join us to spread the knowledge, technique and passion to get the BP style Bachata on the dancefloor and show that Bachata is so much more than 1, 2, 3, tap. Don’t just sit back and watch but be part of this development as a BP ambassador!

Dancing and teaching are my passion, I enjoy helping other to improve and to share my knowledge & experience. For me the best thing is to see how someone enters your class at the try-out classes and to see them develop and improve week by week. At the end of the course you can really tell how much they have improved in such a short period.   When I am teaching I find it important to create a family atmosphere in my classes. I want everyone to feel at ease, be comfortable to ask questions and to have fun while...

Bachata geeft mij ontzettend veel plezier en energie. Zodra de muziek begint kan ik helemaal wegdromen.

Ik denk Bachata, ik ruik Bachata, ik voel Bachata , ik BEN Bachata! Ik kan mij met deze romantische dans identificeren. Ik ben een grote fan van deze muziek. Ben een grote fan van Romeo Santos. (Als je die kent, snap je helemaal waarom ik verliefd ben op zijn muziek.. GrapjeJ.

Het gevoel wat ik krijg van Bachata muziek is heel intens. Ik kan mezelf helemaal in de muziek mee laten gaan. Met Bachata denk ik even nergens aan.

Bachata is eigenlijk een beetje op mijn pad gekomen. Ik volgde eerst salsa les bij BP en kwam hierdoor in aanraking met bachata. Ik begon met meetrainen met het team en hierdoor groeide mijn enthousiasme voor deze dansstijl.

Om eerlijk te zijn, vond ik bachata niet zo interessant. Het enthousiasme van Steffie en Geno heeft mijn passie voor bachata aangewakkerd. Al doende ben ik van de muziek gaan houden, ben ik de techniek gaan waarderen en ben ik geïnteresseerd geraakt in de geschiedenis. Toen ik de show: Alejaté de mi zag, was ik verkocht en dacht ik: dat wil ik ook

ik dans bachata omdat ik van het muziek geniet. Het mooie van Bachata muziek is hoe je elk instrument op zichzelf kan horen in elk lied. Het is geen dj mix met technisch aangemaakte geluiden en beats. Het zijn echte instrumenten die ieder op hun eigen manier het lied compleet maken.

Dancing has become my biggest passion since I joined Bachata passion. I really enjoy and feel relaxed while dancing on bachata music. My aim as a teacher is to spread the passion and diverity of bachata to our students. Bachata is much more than 1,2,3, tap. There are several types of figures, spins and steps that makes bachata so much fun! While teaching I find it important that everyone can enjoy in a relaxed environment. I think that all students will learn all the techniques and figures much faster in a fun and social environment.

My goal as a teacher is to teach my students how to dance with everyone and to not be

stuck to a fixed parttern per dance school. I want my students to have all the experience,

technique, and figures to play with their own musicality and creativity. Therefor I find it very

important that the guys really learn the technique of how to lead and that the ladies learn

how to follow every movement.

ik hou van veel muziek- en dansstijlen maar bachata is de dans waar ik het meeste bij voel, waarbij je verleden en toekomst even vergeet en jezelf helemaal in het moment kan verliezen. Eigenlijk maakt het voor even intens gelukkkig. "The beat is a lover that never disappoints" 😉

Tijdens Bachata dansen vergeet ik al het andere om me heen en kan ik me lichamelijk uiten. Ik vind bachata zo heerlijk omdat ik volledig moet loslaten maar tegelijkertijd ook mijn voeten grotendeels hun eigen ding kunnen doen op de muziek die ik hoor.

Ik ben opgegroeid met de muziek en het voelt vertrouwd zodra ik bachata hoor. Bachata is voor mij gezelligheid en lekker losgaan op de muziek.

In de veronderstelling dat bachata alleen maar 1-2-3-tap was, ben ik met BP naar een bachata congress geweest in Milaan. Hier ging er een wereld voor mijn open en ik werd verliefd op de bachata sensual!

Het is een heerlijke dans waarin je emoties kwijt kan en jezelf even helemaal kan verliezen en alles om je heen kan vergeten.

Omdat ik graag contact heb met mensen en omdat ik het een mooie veelzijdige dansstijl vind.
