It was a song that turned Andy Truong into a fan of Bachata, a sensual Latin dance that drew him and hundreds of other devotees to a four-day festival of morning workshops and late-night dances that ended today in Reno.
If you like to dance, or watch professional dancers, you may want to check out a massive dance party at the Silver Legacy Casino this weekend.

Bachata is both a musical style and dance born in the mountains of the Dominican Republic. Some common themes in its songs are those of lost love, lost hope and betrayal --all delivered through sexual double entendres which originally gave bachata a seedy reputation that kept it hidden in the lower class barrios of its own nation for decades. It wasn’t until the 1990's that bachata became a socially acceptable music on radio stations and in the clubs in the Dominican Republic.
Reno Dance Sensation is a four-day dance convention and party held in exciting Reno, NV, focusing on West Coast Swing, Salsa, Bachata, and others such as Lindy and A. Tango.
