The judges move on to Rancho, also in Simpson Bay on Saturday, March 28th to find the second winning couple and then to Son Latino on the A. Th. Illidge Road on Sunday March 29 to select the final winning couple.
Once all three winning couples have been named, the judges will ask guests at the three nightspots, along with members of the public to vote for their favourite bachata dance couple, by sending an SMS message to 7511 choosing Couple #1, Couple #2 or Couple #3 as the overall winner.
The couple with the most SMS votes will be officially announced as St. Maarten’s hottest bachata dance couple during the April 28th Latin night in which top Latin acts Grupo Niche, Miriam Cruz, Frank Reyes and La Nueva Escuela will be performing.
The event is being organized by Montage Events, in collaboration with mobile provider TelCell.
Grisha Heyliger-Marten of Montage N.V., is encouraging members of the public to turn out at each location to have fun, support the local dancers and help the judges select the best dance couple from each of the three locations being scouted.
“TelCell is making it possible for latin-music and bachata fans to also have a say by sending an SMS message to 7511 from each of the locations voting for their favourite couple,” said Grisha.
She said even those who cannot see the dancers in person tonight or on any of the other nights, can still see how they perform when a recording of their bachata dance routines are posted on TelCell and Montage facebook pages after the three finalists have been named.
