Visiting DR 16 times and doing 6 years the autentic Dominican bachata research I can confirm that the bachata style of Troy & Jorjet is mostly (and close to the perfection) autentic Dominican style. Their way of dancing includes huge amount of elements and styling. In addition of doing the things right they are fun and excellent instructors. You'll love their way of teaching and dancing. In DR they will do both simple to learn and the most advanced workshops.
However we have to notice that the way Dominicans dance bachata in their own bachata clubs is not always that flashy and footwork oriented. We will also need the Dominican instructors to teach the other aspects of the autentic. DR 2nd is your autentic Dominican style bachata University. It's the meeting point for the best Dominican and International bachata instructors and dancers. In addition of presenting the high end DR 2nd is also meant for the beginners. Most of the Dominicans can do only basic level dancing, which is just right for the beginners. This is one of the unknown aspects of the autentic Dominican style as well as the Dominican crazy way to do the tropical parties.
Google or YouTube with "Troy&Jorjet" and you'll find endless amount of their presentations and workshop samples. Study also the FB groups:
This group includes a lot of autentic Dominican style bachata videos including huge amout of Troy&Jorjet videos. The group name "Real" was needed 2 years ago when bachata instructors claimed teaching Dominican style (shortly DomiBachata), but their style had nothing to do with the autentic (how dominicans dance in their own bachata Clubs). Nowadays bachata people of the world are aware that autentic is a dance of its own.
This is another group having lot's of Troy & Jorget videos.
