HÀ NỘI — The third International Latin Festival kicked off in the capital Friday with a range of activities.
The three-day event features performances by more than 50 international and local dance artistes, including salsa dancers Adrian and Anita from Uruguay and Brazil, respectively. The couple are well known for their innovative and energetic shows in more than 40 countries across the world. Other artistes include internationally recognised Bachata teachers Kiko and Christiana from Spain and Germany, respectively, the most popular Bachata couple in Germany and pioneers of this romantic dance style in the north of the country, as well as Carlos and Chloe from Australia. This new dance couple combines Carlos’ European Bachata style with Chloe’s sensual and dynamic Australian style.
Bích Ngọc, the first runner-up of Vietnam Idol 2015, along with other artistes, DJs and bands from countries such as the United States, Scotland, Japan, South Korea and Malaysia, will also participate in the event.
Bootcamps with salsa and kizomba performances as well as a two-hour kizomba master class by instructors Guiu and Borboleta from Spain will also be held.
“Professional and fast growing are the two words to describe this event. It is well organised, with many interesting performances and competitions. The entry price is also cheaper compared to other global events. Most importantly, the spirit of the festival is remarkable. I feel united with all my Salsa friends in this event. My satisfaction goes beyond my expectation,” said Ri Linh from HCM City, who participated at the festival last year. — VNS
