About BachataStars

The BachataStars competition was first organised in Spain in 2010. After the success of the first year the competition grew to a European competition which unambiguously shows that bachata is getting more and more popularity in our continent. In 2012 13 countries took part in the BachataStars Europe international competition: Spain, Germany, UK, Austria, France, Holland, Italy, Norway, Poland, Romania, Portugal, Sweden and Argentina as a guest. In 2013 and 2014 the organisers keep on working devotedly on bringing BachataStars to more countries and create a bigger crowd of bachateros on a higher standard.

BachataStars is a competition that gives the possibility for the professional dancers to strengthen their position in the dancing world and at the same time it gives a chance to the new upcoming dancers to show their possibilities, just as it happened with the champions of 2013 Gon & Bella, 2012 Daniel & Desiree or the 2011 European champions Chaves & Silva.
