Jam packed with shows and workshops, expect three whole days of sexy fun in the inaugural Singapore International Salsa Festival 2006.
Besides local talents, the event also features acts from the US, Europe, Columbia, Cuba, Hong Kong, Malaysia, India and Japan. Performers will take the stage; instructors will impart useful dance skills to win your partner over while DJs will dish out sensual and addictive salsa beats to get the groove going.
With the many acts scheduled, who are the must-sees? Rudy Vee, the senior marketing manager of Quebec Asia says, “Edie The Salsa Freak is an awesome instructor and performer. He has won numerous international awards and this is his first time in Singapore. Another heavyweight is recording artiste Johnny Polanco.” He adds, “Do watch out for DJ Michelle from Hong Kong too. She is the only lady salsa DJ in the world, and she has been spinning at all the top salsa festivals.”
To make things even more exciting, organizers will try to leave a mark in the Guinness Book of Records with the largest salsa casino rueda circle on the last day of the festival. They are hoping for 175 couples to make this record.
