Do I have to keep my wristband all the time?

By | FAQ | No Comments

Yes! Your wristband is your ticket to a festival. You have to take care of it because if you lose or break it you will have to buy another one. You can put it on any part of body you want, just make sure it is visible. The wristband is waterproof and durable so once you have put it you can forget about it and enjoy your stay.

Will instructors and performers dance with me?

By | FAQ | No Comments

As long as you ask them to dance, yes :) We will remind our Instructors and performers (Artists) about the importance of socializing. Artists will not disappear during parties and they will do their best to dance with everybody. But please understand that there are a lot of people that want to dance with them so they might get tired and need to get a break. Please empathize and let them breath from time to time.

Do I have to decide in advance which level I want to take?

By | FAQ | No Comments

No you don’t. Sometimes dancers prefer to follow the specific artist and not the specific level. You can go whichever workshop you want to go, but please keep in mind that you could be bored on some lower levels or frustrated with inability to follow some advanced classes.

However, there is one exception: if you buy Beginner Pass you can attend only beginner workshops, but don’t worry, there are plenty of those to fill your whole day.

Is photographing and videotaping during the workshops allowed?

By | FAQ | No Comments

Photographing and videotaping during the workshops is not allowed, with the exception of videotaping at the end of the class but only for the workshop attendees. You will be able to tape workshop recap at the end of every class when teachers invite you to do so. You can also photograph them or take pictures with them at the end of class, of course with their permission.

Do I need a partner to attend workshops?

By | FAQ | No Comments

No you don’t need a partner. You can partner up spontaneously at the festival! And if you don’t, you still don’t have to worry – teachers usually rotate dancers in workshops which means, you’ll get a plenty of partners, not just one! If you do have a partner we still recommend swinging (dance swinging of course) with the other couples, because experiencing other leaders or followers makes you learn much, much more, not to talk about new friendships and maybe something more? =)

What do I wear to a salsa festival?

By | FAQ | No Comments

Dress comfortably for the workshops. Wear whatever keeps you moving freely. Bikinis are welcome too! As for the shoes – avoid the shoes with rubber or sticky soles as they will prevent you from spinning. It is cool to have a towel and a bottle of water.

Ladies – we suggest you NOT to dance in the high heels on the workshops, at least not the whole time. There will be a lots of crazy salsa parties – you don’t want to tire your feet on the first day and spent other three watching other people dancing! Be smart and pace yourself in order to endure this big dance marathon!

For parties dress to impress! =) We suggest you to tailor your outfit to dance occasions – clothes mustn’t inhibit your dance movement and make you feel uncomfortable and therefore distract your attention out of dancing. Footwear should be pre tested and confirmed by you as comfortable so that you can properly dance the night away.
