Bachatando Festival
From the 6th to the 8th March, for the first time Brussels guests the first Bachatando edition, an international bachata festival. Organized by the Granda Dance Project Company, this ambitious event is characterized by convivial atmosphere and goodtime mood.

Bachata comes from the Dominican Republic. Related to other dances such as salsa, Bachata distinguishes itself for its soft rhythms and metallic sounds. All around the word there is no Latino Club worthy this name denying this musical style, recognized as one of the most appreciated afro-Caribbean dances. Bachateros from Australia, America, Sweden, Norway and Finland have already enjoyed their Bachata festivals, all of great success. Belgian dancers are now longing for this seducing event, dedicated to their favourite music.


Bachatando offers two days of parties (+ Sunday brunch) with workshops, evening's events and shows; simply the best of Bachata, with an excellent line-up of national and international teachers and artists. With some touch of kizomba, salsa, tango and reggaeton... Bachatando proposes gorgeous courses for intermediate dancers but our attention goes also to beginners. With the ambition of introducing them smoothly to the passionate word of Latino dances we devotes to them two specific workshops of the festival, one for bachata, the other for Salsa.
