Women's History Month BACHATANightz will feature an all women showcase in honor of women's history month. The Bay area Latin dance scene has amazing talent with different dance companies that provide women of any age and background the opportunity to learn, and showcase styles such as Bachata, Salsa, Cha Cha, and more. The idea is to empower women and bring them together to express and get inspire through the art of dance.
We will have an amazing lineup with some of the Bay Area's Ladies teams such as KathyReyesDance, Inessence, Latin Symbolic, and more.
We Also have the honor to present to you Erika Lachenmeier and Amanda Lowrey an amazing Duo who represented the Bay Area and became champions of the same gender ladies division at the World Latin Dance Cup this past Dec 2017.
Bachata Nightz happens the first Thursday of the month. It is led by award-winning Bachata contest master Kathy Reyes, who also teaches dance at Ashkenaz. Bachata is a form of Latin dance/music that originated in the Dominican Republic. It is now danced all over the world. Reyes teaches the dance lesson at 8:30 p.m., followed by performance and dancing to recorded music spun by DJ MIGZ.
Currently the defending Los Angeles Bachata Champion (winning first place at the L.A. Bachata Festival), Kathy Reyes is known for her unique style and interpretation of music. She discovered her talent and passion for Latin dancing in college in Los Angeles, and over the past 10 years has taken various prizes individually and in dance troupes. She leads groups and teaches here, in Los Angeles and San Diego. Teaching allows her to share her philosophy of dance: “Dancing with the feet is one thing, but dancing with the heart takes one to a whole different level.”
