From the late 1990s and onward, dancers in the Western World started creating novel dance forms inspired by bachata music. The most well-known example of this is the made up basic step commonly referred to as the "side to side step", which is sometimes accompanied by an exaggerated "pop” of the hips during the tap. These novel western dance forms were mostly created copying dance moves from other partner dances of various origins, Latin and non-Latin alike. Often referred to in the West as "authentic/Dominican" bachata, the original social dance was created in the Dominican Republic during the 1960s and was danced only in closed position, like the Bolero, often in close embrace. Bachata basic steps are performed by moving within a small square (side, side, forward and then tap with your toes, than side, side, back and tap). This step was inspired by the bolero basic step, but evolved over time to include a tap and syncopations (steps in between the beats), helping dancers express the more dynamic music being commonly played. The hand placement can vary according to the position of the dances, which can range from very close to open to completely open.
