ATTENTION ALL BACHATA DANCERS

THE WORLDS MOST RESPECTED AND KNOWLEDGABLE BACHATA DANCER/TEACHER/CHOREOGRAPHER IS COMING TO TOWN.

NINO ACOSTA MELBOURNE TOUR
SEPTEMBER 7, 8 and 9

NINO ACOSTA studied formally under the schooling of Cassandra Damiron (Dominican Afro-Icon) and the International Performing Arts School in the Dominican Republic, trained in New York in the 90’s with the Mambo King, Eddie Torres and won several Salsa Championships in the 80’s.
He choreographed the films Assassination Tango and Dance With Me, trained Cirque de Soleil actors and performers and in 2016 Nino proudly founded the World Bachata Society, a Non For Profit organisation for Dominican Culture and dance aficionados.

And just when you think he’s done it all, this year Nino will release his first Bachata Documentary that has taken more than 10 years to produce
“The Bachata Chronicles”.

We urge you to take advantage of his Melbourne workshops.
