Premium Boutique Event

The Idea behind LFM is to create an experience that you will cherish forever. 
We call it 'Boutique' as we would like to limit the participants to only 300 (with a possible 1:1 gender ratio) to give a very personal & friendly experience. 

The Festival is a SBK Event (Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba), that caters to Intermediate or higher level dancers. The focus of the festival is SOCIAL DANCING & LEARNING. Of course, there are performances, but limited to Artists and selective Team shows.
