Having started Australia’s first bachata dedicated social night, and starting his own school, Bachata Inc, Leonardo has become one of the most respected and well known bachata instructors in Australia. Born in Chile, he grew up around latin music, yet only started dancing much later in life. With training in salsa (LA and Cuban), zouk, tango, kizomba, and hip hop, Leonardo’s style of bachata is one that is truly unique.
A love for musicality and a focus on body movement makes him stand out in the Melbourne bachata scene. Having competed locally, and performed locally and overseas, he tries to make every performance different and unexpected, and this translates directly from his unique social style.
Workshops are generally full of laughter as he tries to make dancing bachata fun and sometimes challenging! With a large focus on lead and follow techniques and body movement, his class is definitely one to attend!
