What is a Salsa Festival?
Salsa festival or congress is large conventions that occur all over the world typically involving an invited variety of well known dancers, performers, instructors and DJ’s from around the world. They usually take part at a hotel function hall or some other ballroom-type facility, and last from two days to over one week. During the daytime there are workshops and seminars as well as vendors who feature dance videos, clothing, shoes, etc. At night there are performances, often live bands, and dance social all night long. The energy that develops when there are so many great dancers in one place is one of the best aspects of festivals/congressens. It is an opportune way for people of all ages, generations and cultures to network, have a great time, and learn and share their passion for Latin / Afro-Caribbean music and dance.

Do I have to be a hardcore Salsero/a to attend?
Of course not! Even the smallest sign that a little salsero lives in you will be enough! How can you tell? Well… You like listening to salsa music? When you hear the beat of the music your happy feet wake up and take control over you? You can’t stop admiring that sexy salsa hip action, or that great footwork? All those are the signs of possibly serous addiction called – Salsamania! Let us help you to release that salsa monster in you!
Our Festival is open for everybody, regardless of previous dance experience. There are even free workshops for absolute beginners.

All we can do is to promise you to do a sunny-weather-calling dance every day till the festival begins!
