LDA CREW GOES TO THE SYDNEY INTERNATIONAL BACHATA FESTIVAL

Management Latin Dance - Tuesday, April 22, 2014

LDA @ The Sydney Bachata Festival 2014




The upcoming Sydney International Bachata Festival is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the rise and rise of bachata!

This close couple dance from the Dominican Republic has taken Australia by storm and is gaining momentum as one of the country’s most popular social dances. Nice and close with lots of sexy hip movement and intricate turn patterns, bachata is one of the most fun ways to dance away an evening! So why not spend three? 

This year’s festival runs from Friday April 25th to Sunday the 27th and include three days of world-class workshops featuring an eclectic range of dance styles, and three evenings with show-stopping performances from some of the best names in today’s Latin industry. One of the most powerful forces behind SIBF is Latin Dance Australia, with LDA Director Nestor Manuelian as one of SIBF’s directors, and LDA pro, sem-pro and amateur dancers making up a big portion of the performance line-up. 

Come and support LDA at this year’s Bachata Festival and treat yourself to one of the best dance events in the country!
