International Bachata Congress 2013

2013 Toronto International Bachata Congress - Promo Video


Bachata is a close cousin to salsa and an equally popular, though less well known, social dance export of the Dominican Republic. It’s slower and more romantic, with a closer hold than salsa. But, like salsa, it has its own attendant galaxy of popular singers, musicians and DJs. The Congress brings bachata superstars from across North America and the DR – including DJ El Tiguero Del Mambo, Rudi Lopez, bachateros Frank Santos and Julie Camous, and popular instructors and salsa/bachata champions Uriel Garcia and Vera Rowe – for a long weekend of competition, concerts, workshops and social events.
