During the last six years the Bachata Championship has been a great success and people have enjoyed a wonderful Latino event with some spectacular performances, great music and some amazing Bachata dancing from the best this country has to offer all competing for the title of AUSTRALIAN BACHATA CHAMPIONS.
To follow are the names of the best Bachata dancers Australia have to offer.
In 2008 Viva Magazine thought of the possibility to organize a Bachata Championship in Australia. The objective of this Bachata Championship will be to found the couples that can best interpret the character of Bachata music and dance regardless of whatever tricks or moves they do.
In other words, it's not the tricks that were important but making them a part of their routine and what Bachata represents.
Since then, the Championships have growth to become together with the Sydney International Bachata Festival two of the most respectable and popular Bachata events in Australia.
Through the years, the Championships have witness some of the best Bachata dancers in Australia compete and contribute in the development and growth of Bachata dancing in Australia.
