– >It is the objective of this competition, to collaborate and promote existing national and supranational competitions and to feed off them so that, together, we all work for the best and greatest development and growth of bachata throughout the world.
-Creating and selecting a highly trained jury in our differentiated and independent criteria, with judges who are globally recognized in bachata judging the criteria associated with bachata and also the best judges of technique, time and acrobatics.
-Because it is called WORLD BACHATA MASTERS (the championship of champions), the competitors must be judged with the best system. The judges are successful artists with a worldwide career, who are also obliged to show their scores transparently to the whole world to help the personal growth of the competitors, through our innovative VVT system (VISUALLY TRANSPARENT VOTING) where will be projected on the spot in live transmission what each judge has voted and how much the competitor is getting in total.
– In the WORLD FINAL competition the couples will be evaluated in two rounds all during the Saturday night, first improvising on an edited song that contains two themes, one of bachata Fusion and another of Dominican bachata, (of 2 minutes approximately) the song will be selected by drawing lots.) and then all the couples will dance their show or choreographic dance (Minimum 2 minutes and maximum 3 minutes),
– The competition will take place in the HOTEL ISLA DE LA GARENA DE ALCALA DE HENARES, near Madrid, Spain. The competition will start at approximately 21:00 hours and the competitors must be ready in the backstage at 20:00 hours.
– The couples will dance individually for the evaluation of the jury.
– The weighting of the improvised dance and the choreography is 40% impro and 60% choreography, at the end of the two modalities the score of each one is added and weighted to obtain the final result.
The duration of the music will be from 2:00 to 3:00 minutes.
The music must be 100% Bachata, with no parts of other rhythms, although several different bachatas can be mixed to make a final theme. The music must be previously approved by the judges, the last deadline for receiving themes is Monday February 5, 2020. IT MUST CONTAIN 50% OF DOMINICAN BACHATA MUSIC AND THE OTHER 50% CAN AND MUST BE BACHATA FUSION(ie romantic, urban, bachatango etc …). 10 seconds of transition are allowed between one music and another to make the musical edition and the cut of the song better. These 10 seconds are not counted in the percentages of each type of bachata. CHOREOGRAPHIES MUST HAVE 2 ACROBACIES AND 3 AIR PORTES WITH A MAXIMUM HEIGHT OF 3.80 METERS so that it can be performed without touching the ceiling of the hall. (STAGE 1 METER, TOTAL HEIGHT FLOOR TO CEILING 4.8 METERS)
The couples must present a choreography, where the music must comply with the established rules otherwise they will be penalized (if the musical % oscillates a maximum of +- 5% the penalty will be 5% of the total score in choreography, but if the percentages are higher, for example 42% of Dominican and 58% of sensual/fusion, the couple will be disqualified)
The order of departure in the choreos and impro will be by drawing of lots prior to the event, which will take place online on February 7 on the fan page www.facebook.com/worldbachatamasters at 4 pm (Spain time). The order of departure will be the same as the rehearsal and show, if for any reason a couple does not show up to the competition, their position will be taken by the next couple.
All couples must dance the improvisation, each couple individually in the starting order by drawing lots.
Is considered improvisation the fact that the couples do not know the music they will dance on, because it will be provided by the organization. It is not an improvisation like the one that would be done in the social dance or on the dance floor, what is sought is an improvisation oriented to the stage, that is to say, an impro-show.
NO AERIAL MOVEMENTS (TRICKS OR ACROBACIES) WILL BE ALLOWED the improvisation IS BACHATA NOT CABARET in the improvisation. Is considered an aerial movement, a movement in which any of the two members of the couple, raise their two feet above the chest of their partner. If a couple makes an aerial movement they will be penalized with 5% of their total score in the improvisation phase.
The music for the improvisation will be drawn from among those chosen by the jury or the organization.
The duration of the music will be approximately 2 minutes.

The couple must choose a time of musical interpretation of the bachata, (in 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 and 8) and the jury will evaluate and look for the failures in the musical time, it is a failure for example that a trick begins on time 1 and when it finishes, the return to the dance is started on time 3. This criterion has 100 points of the 1000 total points. We are looking for dancers to use a count from 1 to 8, but identifying the time changes that the music makes and that the first musical beat is ALWAYS clearly interpreted. That is to say, it is right if you dance in 2 (within the count 1 to 8) and also if you dance in 1 (within the count 1 to 8), it is wrong if you change from 1 to 2 , and also it is wrong if you pass from 1 to 5, because we are evaluating the interpretation of the dance and not the point of view of the musical creation.
VISUAL PRESENTATION AND STAGE PRESENCE
Costumes, makeup, hairstyle, shoes and accessories in general. Also the attitude with which the dancers are when they leave, during and when they come down from the stage. This criterion has 100 points of the 1000 total points.
This item measures the dancers’ resources, arm and leg lines, body axis and balance, position and firmness of the torso, posture, placement, the knowledge of the figures they are presenting and the quality of execution of the dance movements. This criterion has 100 points out of 1000 total points.
AIR MOVEMENTS (ACROBATICS AND BEHAVIORS AND OTHERS): Correct execution of carries and acrobatics, This criterion has 100 points of the 1000 total points. MAXIMUM 2 AERIAL ACROBATICS AND 3 AERIAL PERFORMANCES IN CHOREOGRAPHY, AERIAL MOVEMENTS IN IMPROVISATION WILL NOT BE EVALUATED. THE MAXIMUM HEIGHT ALLOWED FOR AERIAL MOVEMENTS IS 3,80 METERS.
IN THE IMPROVISATION PHASE THE AIR MOVEMENT CRITERION IS NOT EVALUATED, AND IS REPLACED BY THE MUSIC CRITERION, in which the way in which the couple takes advantage of the musical richness of the songs they improvise is valued. But if a couple performs an Air Movement in this phase they will be penalized.
MOVEMENTS OF DOMINICAN BACHATA
It is mandatory that each couple both in the improvisation and in the choreography perform a minimum of 30% of the entire dance with movements of international Dominican bachata style, meaning movements of Dominican bachata those that clearly mark the 4 beats of bachata with the corresponding hip hit in one of them (depending on which time you choose to dance), also identifies this style with footwork and especially with the more explosive energy that should accompany the implementation of this style to their music.
