Veterans and newbies of dancing bachata, the sexier-than-salsa dancing style from the Dominican Republic, will have plenty of chances to strut their stuff, from concerts to contests to workshops. In addition to its dance events, the festival recognizes the art form’s best of the best, along with difference makers in the Hispanic community at the DCBX Excellence Awards. Meanwhile, its Global Impact Film Festival celebrates different cultures and raises awareness about important worldwide issues, while a speaker series for entrepreneurshelps fuel the next big ideas.
