Italia's Got Talent: Bachata Performance
www.youtube.com
So I came across this video, and I immediately opened it when I saw "Sexy Bachata Dance." For those of you who do not know, I am a HUGE fan of bachata, and it's one of my favorite genres/dances.
When I watched the video, my feelings towards it went from excitement, to disappointment. I know that these sort of performances are meant to be dramatic and calculated, but there was a lot of things about it that I could not get over.

When I think of bachata dancing, of think of sensuality, passion, smoothness, closeness.

When I see this video, I see aggression, acrobatics, stiffness, overt dramatics.

I also hardly even saw the basic bachata steps here.
What do you guys think about the performance?

For me it was decent. I wasn't too crazy about the exaggerated sideways body roll.... thing. .. Too over the top for me. That aside, it was a beautiful dance with the lifts . More bachata would have been nice though.
