I don’t know much about Bachata, but I know I love to jam. The Atlanta International Bachata Festival will be happening May 22-26 at the Luxurious Hyatt Regency in Atlanta. This festival is jam PACKED with pool parties, world-class workshops, live shows, night parties (with performers and dancers in attendance), etc. I need my handkerchief. Just imagining all of these beautiful people in one sweaty area…good grief.

This festival is clearly remarkable because this is the sixth year it’s been in existence! Turn down for what? Not for bachata, that’s for sure. While you dance the nights away with the fabulous view of the Atlanta Skyline, the festival wants you to leave knowing that the dance revolution is set to explode making Latin dancing an international phenomenon that will unify all global communities. They want to convey this message through the performances and many workshops that will be offered during the entirety of the festival.

If you want to know how to get your groove on Bachata-style, check out their website for a full list of performers, workshops and ticket prices!
