Dubai Dance Festival 2014 kicks off today

Summer in Dubai continues to heat up as it plays host to the largest dance event of the year with the Dubai International Dance Festival.

Stomp your feet, sway those hips, and wildly move and groove to the bounciest beats as the world’s biggest dance festival invades Dubai starting today September 24 to September 27. This year’s event highlights the passion and boldness of sensational Latin dances. Know your Rumba from your Samba, and see if the Bachata is sexier than the Kizomba.

For the seventh year, well-known dance companies, classical dance academies, youth orchestras, rocking bands, and music ensembles from the region and around the world come together to revel in the incomparable joys and beauty of the art of dance.

You can party to the pulsating beats and indulge in endless hours of fun with expert dancers, international guest DJs, and all-around booty-shakers in this weekend festival. It will be held at the Jebel Ali Beach Hotel, a vibrant party venue near the sparkling waters which is also a favorite for adventurous fishing excursions and fun-filled yacht charter in Dubai.

On top of the nightly festival parties, the event will also feature Dance and Meet sessions, choreography bootcamps, special dance workshops, international and national shows, and the first International Rueda de Casino dance competition. All dance styles will be explored in the workshops as well as Latin favorites Salsa, Mambo, Cha Cha Cha, Kizomba, Zouk, and Bachata.

The festival is no ordinary weekend shindig. Over the years, it has become a veritable venue for new work and creative activity to flourish in the region. It offers dance professionals and fervent amateurs education programs and artistic collaborations with organizations in the UAE, the Middle East, and the rest of the world.

Get your tickets now, and dance like nobody’s watching at the Dubai International Dance Festival.
