I have just returned from Paris Bachata Festival where I have been witnessing for 4 years an inspiring journey of Sensual form of this dance.
I must admit I was one of the sceptics at first, even though, I embrace sensuality and connection in dance, I love the authentic form of its origin. Nevertheless, I couldn't ignore the fact that this new wave is growing beyond our traditional beliefs.
I watched with fascination young people joining the social dance scene and bringing new flavour and new dimension to it. Sensuality oozes from every pore of that dance and even transpired into the creation of a new music genre.
When I met Korke and Judith as young aspiring performers, little did anyone know, even themselves, they will soon become the creators of this new dance that will take over the world:) I still remember watching their first show in London with goosebumps. It is one of the rare experiences where dance touches your soul on a deeper level.
Passion is so important in everything we do. And passion for what we love is always infectious. I can only admire in awe how this young couple put sensual at the core of their connection, and together with tremendous passion, inspiration, integrity and leadership, they are transforming the world.
