The event attracts passionate individuals 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.
There are workshops 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 are 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 instructors and performers come from the Dominican Republic, home to the most talented Bachateros.
Latin dance schools throughout Australia support the festival; if you’d like your school to participate in the event, you must follow the process detailed on the Performers Registration page on the website.
