We are glad to announce thaT Mr Juan Ruiz (Tropical Soul Dance Studio, Sydney) will be here in Christchurch to conduct Bachata Workshops...!

Juan Ruiz is one of the most important Bachata Instructors in Australia. He will be in Christchurch on the 5th of September for 4 hours of cool & awesome Bachata Workshops and 6th September for Privates. Most of us have attended his workshops previously at New Zealand Bachata Festival and Sydney International Bachata Festival. For those who don’t know Juan - Juan’s is the pioneer of the Bachata Moderna style, a style he started developing in 2008. Bachata Moderna is a more stylized style of Bachata where dancers can add different footwork and transitions and yet remain true to Bachata form, maintaining the feeling & emotional elements that makes Bachata what it is. His syllabus and moves are being used around the world. What’s special about Juan is that his moves have smooth transition and his craft of teaching Bachata, Juan ensures that Bachata dancing of his student evolves.

Juan is also the director of Bachateros Australia and Tropical Soul dance Studio. In addition, Juan is one of the directors of the prestigious Sydney International Bachata Festival.
