Yes, it’s San Francisco Bachata Festival time. This is huge – and it’s coming your way, Summer 2010! The San Francisco Bachata Festival, now in it’s second year, is an amazing piece of work put on by Rodney “Rodchata” Aquino, the grand-daddy of Bachata in the US.

This 8 day long bachata dance festival is a bachata dancer’s dream, with live bachata music (Domenic Marte), and instructors travelling from all over the world to participate. As a dancer, I can safely say, that if you dance bachata, you’ll probably be attending this festival (if not, there’d be a really good reason). Most every bachata dancer in the US attends this amazing event …

The main event, taking place at the Parc 55 Hotel in San Francisco (central San Francisco – the best spot in the city), is from July 16-19th. This year, the event is teamed with a Salsa Festival, to make it a complete experience for the Bachatero. Tons of pre-parties means you should plan to attend this event early.

All skill levels are encouraged to attend, even (and especially) rote beginners, as the purpose of the festival is two fold: both to have an amazing event for existing bachata dancers, but also to reach out to new bachata dancers, and spread the love of the dance and the music.

There’s simply no place else in the world that the bachata dancer (and aspiring bachata dancer) needs to be. We hope to see you at this years, San Francisco Bachata Festival.
