Rodney Rodchata Aquino was solely responsible for revolutionizing bachata dance in USA. RODCHATA, as bachateros intimately calls him, has been in the Latin Dance scene for over 19 years and is considered the foremost authority in the bachata dance, both Dominican and Modern styles. He has founded the very first bachata festival in the USA (Reno Bachata Festival & San Francisco Bachata Festival) and co-founded the 1st Bachata festival in the Dominican Republic. He has judged bachata competitions all over the world including USA Salsa Open, Canada Open, WLDC (World Latin Dance Cup 2 years in a row) and others.  He has sold his DVD line up, a 5-volume of dance instructional DVDs of bachata, salsa and merengue, to over 60 countries, and just produced  new DVDs; THE SECRETS OF DOMINICAN BACHATA

A certified dance instructor, Rodchata’s solid dance background includes Latin International Ballroom, Kizomba, salsa (on1, on2 mambo, and Cuban son), chachacha, merengue and bachata. He had been studying the bachata culture by frequently visiting the Dominican Republic, and eventually getting involved in starting the 1st bachata festival there. He has since revolutionized bachata dancing in USA and the world. You can find his dance classes in the San Francisco Bay Area.
