The LA Bachata Festival (LABF) stands as the premier original Bachata Festival in Los Angeles, a bi-annual extravaganza drawing dance enthusiasts from around the globe. Twice a year, every February and August, it creates unforgettable moments for attendees, fostering a welcoming environment that champions freedom, expression, and dance fulfillment.
Since its inception in 2009, LABF has evolved into a multifaceted experience, offering an array of workshops and events that showcase its uniqueness. From the Beginner Bachata Festival to Bachata Concerts, awe-inspiring performances, and the best of LA's DJ talent spinning Salsa, Kizomba, Zouk, Traditional Bachata, and Sensual Bachata across five ballrooms until 5 am. The energy doesn't stop there—the party continues with LA's dancers grooving until 7 am at the Sunrise Silent Party.
But the festival isn't solely about Bachata; it's a melting pot of dance styles. Beyond Bachata, attendees can explore workshops in Hip Hop, Mambo, Heels, and even unique sessions like the Famous Lap Dance Workshop. There are also opportunities for holistic experiences such as yoga with Sound Baths, Massage sessions, and specialized courses like the Instructor Training & Business of Dance Course led by Leslie Ferreira, the mastermind behind the LA Bachata Festival.
