He is such a fun fellow

By | Shaan | No Comments

You have, but really just *have* to love Shaan! He is such a fun fellow, you can never get bored with him around! Always up for laughs and giggles, always ready for a dance, burning the floor both with his smooth and stylish dance moves and his killer DJ sets – he is a great addition for every good salsa event and I’m so happy he’s joining us at SBSF again!

He will mambo you crazy

By | Sergio | No Comments

What to say about Sergio? …He is all about the infamous French Charm  Smooth on the dance floor and off, kind and friendly, full of creativity and musicality, a very light and gentle lead, and an awesome DJ on top of it! He will mambo you crazy – no matter if he’s spinning or spinning you .

He is all nice and friendly and just a really cool guy

By | DJ Gabriel | No Comments

First time that I have seen him setting up his DJ thingies – I was like “what is this grandpa doing here?” Oh, what a newbie I was!  Then i heard him play…. And you know what? That “grandpa” can really burn the place right down!! Not only did I almost completely destroy my feet because I didn’t want to miss a single song of that super-awesome set, but had a great dance with him later that evening  And on top of that – he is all nice and friendly and just a really cool guy! So happy he’s coming to SBSF again!

Right size for spontaneous dance-offs

By | Pool Party | No Comments

It takes the right kind of balance make a pool party experience have a lasting impression, and every year SBSF team have just the right ingredients in the right quantities. A balance of music, proximity to the sea, and just the right size for spontaneous dance-offs. The experience is never forced. A testament to what can really happen when you let the party goers just get on with it. With access to the seafront a few meters away and the party lasting till late evening, one of the highlights was to go for a swim at sunset. To witness a sunset and moonrise in the sea with music in the background is something that will live on in my memory. Not to be missed.

Truly a pleasure to dance with

By | Natasha | No Comments

There are those of us that dance and those of us who are dancers. Natasa is definitely a dancer. Known for her effortless, smooth and always funky dancing, she is truly a pleasure to dance with. If in any doubt then you just have to look at the smile on her dance partner’s face.

No autopilot to be seen here

By | Franklin | No Comments

I am a guy, and I actually never took any of Franklin’s classes, but last year I witnessed him coming to a party where he danced his feet off, giving everything to each dance for a hour straight, before taking a rest. Many people dance on autopilot when they are tired. No autopilot to be seen here.

Her playful personality and style are unmatched

By | Magna | No Comments

Magna is probably the most inspiring salsa dancer and teacher in the world. Her playful personality and style are unmatched, her skill and precision are unbelievable, and on top of that, she is a mesmerizing teacher – I never saw anyone get a whole hall of people’s attention just by showing up on stage. For me, a true salsa superstar.

Beware the hot sun, strong drinks and cute ladies

By | Pool Party | No Comments

Pool party is great, but having a pool party & chill-out pool party two days in a row, well, that’s a killer! Beware the hot sun, strong drinks and cute ladies, either of those is enough to make you lose your head. Yet there you’ve got all in one place, like I’ve said… a killer combo P.S. Not to say that ladies won’t have anything nice to look at…

he keeps popping those awesome songs from nowhere

By | Shaan | No Comments

With Shaan you’re certified to have great music all night long! This man is just great, keeps popping those awesome songs from nowhere, and keeps you busy on the dancefloor. And if that was only all! Great dancer, teacher and altogether a very nice person! Ladies, when he’s not on the stage, you’ll want to grab him for a dance or two!

What a bunch of showstoppers!

By | Alafia | No Comments

What a bunch of showstoppers! These guys never leave without a grand applause, be it on a stage, in classroom or just fooling around in the hallway Last time I watched them they had a ground-braking performance. Literally – they broke the dancefloor! And haven’t even flinched, just took a photo, made a joke about rocking the stage, and moved on with a smile. Now that’s how you do it!

She is a heart of every party

By | Magna | No Comments

Now Magna is everyone’s favorite! She’s patient instructor that always gives you extra useful info, a performer that put’s the “M” in Musicality, dancer that you’ll want to dance with no matter if you lead or follow, and most of all – a heart of every party! On SBSF you’ll notice her everywhere: hot spot, boat trip, pool party, … and if she’s not there you should know you’re missing a better party somewhere else

A perfect mixture of urban cool with a touch of sleek class

By | Natasha | No Comments

Natasha is the kind of dancer you want to spend the whole night following around with your eyes, the kind of dancer who makes you want to become her shadow! Geeky and sweet off the dance floor, music transforms her into a perfect mixture of urban cool with a touch of sleek class. Challenge yourself to look away – you’ll definitely fail every time!

Natasha is really unique

By | Natasha | No Comments

In my opinion, dancing with Natasha is really unique. Her following is amazing, she is always focused both on the partner and on the dance so that you can build up a real connection. Furthermore, she is as light as a feather without any negative influence on her reaction. This is the way a dance should be for me – completely smooth from the beginning, with a constant smile

He gives an entirely different view of the dance

By | Kwenda | No Comments

Kwenda has great teaching and dancing ability. He is so generosity in teaching and his classes are really an inspiration because are filled with high energy and charisma. He gives an entirely different view of the dance and the Kizomba. I will always be happy to attend his classes and I can’t wait for the next opportunity to learn from him.

He knows how to work the crowd

By | Romy | No Comments

Dj Romy knows how to work the crowd. He knows how to keep the party going and tired feet dancing until the Sun is up (on Monday morning!). But hey, if you think he will only give you fuel to keep dancing on the salsa floor, just wait till you get to the pool party! And his dance and performance skills? That would require a whole new paragraph! Grab him for a dance, ladies, and you’ll see for yourselves.

I bet they could teach absolutely anyone to dance

By | Ricky & Tajana | No Comments

Tajana and Jurica have contributed to the Coratian salsa scene immensely as dancers, teachers and festival organizers. They have taught and inspired generations and generations of great salsa dancers and made them fall in love with the dance and music. It is a joy to watch them dance and share their knowledge with so much passion. I bet they could teach absolutely anyone to dance, even the ones who think they have “two left feet”.

Music, natural movements, emotions, feeling of childhood, dance and philosophy of life – all woven together

By | Kwenda | No Comments

I love the style of the Kwenda, which is close to the authentic Portuguese or Cape Verde. At the master classes he focuses on the origin of some of the elements from other dance Kizomba Cape Verde, shows the difference with Kizomba in Angola. He places great emphasis on maintaining and statement, and not on the learning of steps. In classes he organically fits to the philosophy of dance, its meaning in life, the relationship between the partners. Music, natural movements, emotions, feeling of childhood, dance and philosophy of life – all woven together. A couple of hours flying in the same breath, though no hint of Kizomba.

Here is where all the fun happens

By | Hot Spot | No Comments

If you’re not only coming for the weekend but planning to spend the whole week, then this is the place to be. Here is where all the fun happens. People dance, talk, socialize all day. It’s a great way to meet new people and make friends. So after getting some sleep join the party again every day at the hot spot!

You think you know everything about body movement?

By | Franklin | No Comments

You think you know everything about body movement? You don’t if you haven’t seen Franklin. Incorporating amazing movement in the most ordinary step and making it look natural is his thing. Crazy classes and show last year, which were super impressive. Can’t wait to see what he comes up with this year at SBSF 2015.

Amazing social dancers

By | Alafia | No Comments

These crazy guys will make you believe that throwing your arms around in the air while doing steps and nodding your head to all of this is fun. They call it boogaloo. Amazing social dancers as well as always ready to react to the unexpected. Very great memories from previous festivals and really happy to see them again in Sibenik this year!

Magna lights up every festival she attends

By | Magna | No Comments

By not only being one of the most amazing dancers to watch, but also one of the kindest and most wholehearted people, Magna lights up every festival she attends. Watching and learning from her is an experience that changes your dancing. Her way of making you understand what her body does works wonders and will improve your awareness a lot. Great time with her last year and can’t wait to see her again at SBSF 2015!

Fell in love with them

By | Erkin & Selin | No Comments

I discovered this frest couple at the Magic Salsa Festival in Ljubljana this year and fell in love with them instantly. Their workshop was a little bit hard for me but I pulled through somehow. Also Erkin is great on the social floor.

He is my inspiration

By | Franklin | No Comments

He is my mentor my coach my inspiration. If you attend a workshop with him you will see why. I never saw someone dancing like him. You will get to know muscles in your class you probably never moved before that much. It’s so great having him for the festival in Europe.

The best man group ever!

By | Alafia | No Comments

The best man group ever. You have to attend their workshops, they are so much fun. Pachanga or cha cha it’s always a party.  They perform great shows, very entertaining especially for woman. Finally don’t miss them on the dance floor if you are a female, you will feel like flying with them.

One of the rare dancers that took my breath away from the first moment I saw him dance. Such glorious movement, amazing footworks and even more amazing shows! Can’t wait to see him killing the dancefloor again!

This woman is a LEGEND! Her fluid movement, amazing musicality and oh, that pachanga… I’ve never been to her classes but just seeing her on the line up makes me wanna jump and dance around my house. Counting days. See you all in the first row!

Stalker here!

By | Jose Diaz | No Comments

I haven’t had the chance to dance with him yet but I definitely want to! I love his company’s performances, if his social dancing is only half good, I might just end up having a new artist to stalk after this summer!

Born with class

By | Griselle | No Comments

You have to be born with elegance and class like that! Diva in the best meaning of that word! °I could watch this woman dance for hours! She makes it look so effortless and fun!

Nice slap in the face

By | Franklin | No Comments

If you think you have nothing new to learn in salsa, take Franklin’s class and he will prove you wrong! It’s a nice slap to the face everyone needs to have every once in a while to remember you can always progress more!

These guys are a full package! Their workshops are always so much fun, they dance till they drop and their performances would make deaf people hear the music as they break the stage!

Hi Magna, I wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for taking the time to meet with myself and Florence Picoli when you were recently in London. It was such an honour meeting you and being able to learn from such a wonderfully humble yet great dancer! Read More
