MAY 21-31,2020

Bachata Paradise is an international festival that takes place in beautiful Las Terrenas -- which also happens to be the home of MetaMovements’ Artist Development Program “MMRD”. Las Terrenas is internationally renowned for its natural beauty, from its pristine beaches to its towering mountains, and it has grown from a tiny rural town into a small city, with a diverse and welcoming community full of independent restaurants, hotels, artists and water sports enthusiasts. It has become increasingly recognized for its dancing, making “Bachata Paradise” the perfect name for a fabulous festival in this amazing place! In addition to providing awesome workshops, parties and tons of fun, the festival prides itself on creating a cultural experience like no other… supporting the local economy and connecting to artists who are truly passionate about sharing their love of traditional bachata and the joys of social dancing.

The members of MMRD have created a unique travel experience for dancers and non-dancers alike, with off-the-beaten-path programs that are described as uplifting, eye-opening and life-changing by past travelers.  Participants advance rapidly in their dancing, while building friendships that will last a lifetime, and joining our on-going celebration of the past, present and future of the music & dances we love.


  • Experienced bachateros want to take their dancing to a higher level and love being part of a community

  • Beginner dancers who want to learn as quickly as possible through an immersive experience

  • Travelers who want some dancing -- attending a few classes, shows & parties, and being part of the group, but also want to try other activities like Spanish lessons, water sports, and relaxing on the beach.
