Bachata Timing. First, I want to tell you exactly who I'm writing this note for: attention bachata dancers of all skill levels, dance instructors, musicians, and music lovers!

I have found something that we all can use. I know that for fact because I am a bachata enthusiast just like you.

Testimonial:
"I bought this CD at the Houston Bachata Weekender and its taken my bachata dancing to another level. Its helping to train my ears on the subtle intricacies of the music. Its similar to salsa in that once you understand the ingredients of the music it becomes A LOT more fun to dance to because you actively hear the timing of each instrument. Its now much easier to freestyle and have fun with bachata instead of dancing to the same beat counts every time. Carlos is a really cool guy and its great that he put this together." - John (pittysteel)

Carlos Cinta "El Unico Bachatero"! Carlos has taught at many international festivals and events around the world. His first YouTube video attracted over 7 million hits! Because of his carefree, lighthearted and fun attitude towards dancing, people are ultimately drawn to his Bachata style and his teaching methods. Known for his unique Teaching ability and "Bachata Musicality" Music Course. Sharing his passion of Dominican Style Bachata to sold-out workshops at festivals all over the world.

Inspired by an extremely talented Bachatera, Carlos began to learn Bachata in order to dance with her. Through his observations while social dancing, he noticed that the level and skill of Bachata on the dance floor were limited to the basic step. Owing much to his boredom and creative collaboration with a friend, Carlos decided to make up all kinds of crazy moves and patterns.

With a teaching experience of eight years, Carlos started in the humble surroundings of his grandparents’ basement helping out a couple friends (who loved the moves he was creating) to teaching his turn patterns with a friend in a little family style Mexican restaurant.

Since then Carlos has video recorded his best teaching tips and dance lessons into the Bachata Thrillogy instructional DVD and CD series for teaching people how to dance bachata. The Bachata Thrillogy series has 6 DVD that cover the sensual bachata style typically scene in dance clubs and the more traditional Caribbean/Dominican style footwork.

In 2010 Carlos Cinta collaborated with Joan Soriano, the world-renowned bachata artist and guitarist from the Dominican Republic, to create the first-ever bachata musicality and timing CD. The bachata CD takes you behind or into the music so you can understand the music and dance with more feeling and connection to the music.

He began by starting a band with his siblings, and eventually started performing with some of the Dominican Republic’s greatest classic merengue and bachata musicians.
