Bachata Dance: Let’s Break the Guinness World Record!

Friday, June 8, 2018

7:30pm – 10:30pm

Friday, June 8 at sunset, 40 Snow Street

According to founder Carlos Gonzales, ‘Mambo Pa Ti’ is a reminder that Mambo is not only the backbone of Salsa but also the backbone of his organization. His company is about music, embracing movement and about being part of a vibrant and positive community. 

Tapping into their vast experience sharing dancing techniques with diverse audiences, Carlos Gonzales and Martin Rivera-Baldera will guide a crowd of festival attendees through the necessary steps to dance to Bachata music. Join them in a history-making attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the “most people dancing a choreographed Bachata dance.”  

They need to get over 370 couples dancing at once! Couples, singles, and groups are invited to come downtown at sunset on Friday, June 8 to pair off for an elegant evening Bachata. Judges from the Guinness Book of World Records will be on hand to count the couples.
