The event attracts individuals who are passionate about the Bachata dance, and it’s the perfect opportunity to learn about it from the talented international instructors who travel to Sydney for the show. Other dances you can learn at the workshop include Kizomba, Zouk, Samba, and Reggaeton, among others.
There are workshops available for beginners to advanced level dancers, with special Master Workshops available although this isn’t included in the full pass. Master Workshops require a separate registration and is only available in limited numbers.
The Annual Sydney International Bachata Festival is famous in the international dance community, which makes it a highly anticipated event each year. Many of the instructors and performers come all the way from the Dominican Republic, home to the most talented Bachateros.
The festival is supported by Latin dance schools throughout Australia; if you’d like your school to participate in the event, you will need to follow the process detailed on the Performers Registration page in the website.
Roundhouse is located on Anzac Parade in Kensington. Be sure to check out the programme of events before the show and RSVP.
