2017 was an incredibly busy year for us. We filmed over 15 Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba, and Brazilian Zouk dance festivals and congresses. We were exposed to many different promoters, locations, cities, countries, personalities, dancers, and artists. We learned a lot about how different festivals are organized and ran.
Like with anything in life, one needs to have balance. Filmed festivals every weekend will inevitabley burn someone out. We tried our best to keep a good balance of local gigs, travel, and dance gigs. Unfortunately, there were months where we filmed several dance festivals consecutively.
With all the experience we got in 2017, 2018 looks brighter than ever. We have new clients on the horizon and are super excited to continue working with with our favorite festivals. It's not easy traveling with expensive equipment and filming/editing a 3-5 day festival non-stop. There are times where we need to take a step back and take a break.

We don't try and work with every festival. Rather, we focus on relationships with good promoters that are fair, honest, and try to do what's best for their respective dance community and push it in the right direction. A big thanks to all of those promoters that we've worked with, and that we continue to work with in the future - you know who you are!!
