The San Francisco Salsa Festival features three nights of performances, dancing and workshops in the heart of downtown San Francisco. Dancers of all levels are invited to attend the festival. During the day, new dancers can attend a beginner bootcamp to learn everything needed to enjoy themselves on the dance floor; more seasoned dancers can attend intermediate and advanced/masters workshops, led by world-champion instructors, to work on taking their dancing to the next level. In the evenings, watch shows from international artists and world-class Bay Area dance companies before dancing the night away to music from the Bay Area’s best DJs and live bands.
A note from the festival organizers:
Over the past 11 years we have traveled the globe, everywhere from Mexico to China, Korea, Japan, Canada, England, and Italy. We've had the opportunity to live abroad, teach workshops and shows, and experience an incredible life in the world salsa community.
Along the way, we have been to the most amazing salsa congresses and festivals. We've made many friends and met the most amazing dancers in the world. The social dancing, workshops, and shows have brought so much fun and joy to people. Nothing could have been possible without this beautiful dance we call salsa. Its presence attracts people and ties them firmly together.
"Life, my friends, is the art of getting together." Therefore, it is our honor and pleasure to organize another great salsa event here in the San Francisco Bay Area.
We want to thank all of our coordinators and volunteers for their hard work, and all of you for supporting our event. Let's enjoy this weekend as much as we can and continue to support our amazing salsa community here in the Bay Area.
