The 4th World Bachata Festival (WBF) is scheduled for November 2016 and will feature a true celebration of Bachata and other Latin dances, in line with similar Bachata events in other major cities in USA, Australia, Spain, Philippines, Japan, India, Singapore, Germany, etc.
Liitha Krishnan, the organiser of WBF, is confident that this year’s turnout is going to be a rave dance party festival. Since 2010, the WBF event has surpassed its objectives and gained much popularity and enthusiasm both locally and internationally, thus creating and enlarging the fraternity of Latin dancers as well as creating public awareness and appreciation.
The troop of accomplished dancers from Spain, Brazil, Cuba and such countries that are home to this Latin dances have appeared in all the past WBF, it has also garner the attention from other country dance performers, such as Australia, Philippines, Singapore, Japan, and Vietnam.
With lots of love and passion in bachata dance, Littha stated that The WBF was initially organised to provide local enthusiast access to accomplished dancers from other countries and an avenue to improve local talent and performances.
So what’s new for WBF in the year 2016? The festival that celebrates Bachata, a sensual partner dance from the Dominican Republic, will also include other popular Latin dance forms like Salsa, Merengue, Zouk and Kizomba. More than 30 workshops have been lined up for anyone and everyone interested in Kizomba, Salsa, Bollywood, Son Cubana, Pachanga, Afro Cuban and Zumba. A few boot camps have also been slotted in for those with basic dancing skills to learn and have a chance to perform on one of the nights. Imagine once you participate in the bootcamp, and out you go to perform on stage!
