This was the 2nd edition of Montreal is Kizomba aka Kizomba Sem Limite hosted in Montreal. It was a pleasure working with the two amazing promoters - Gerry and Marie.
The weather was perfect on the weekend of the event. The location of the workshops and social dancing is situated in the heart of downtown Montreal. We stayed at a nice, urban hotel located walking distance to the event and Chinatown. Many dancers stayed at Air Bnbs in the area.
SBKZ Media managed Montreal is Kizomba's Facebook page during the event. We updated demos and next-day edits as the event was unfolding. You can see all the videos we uploaded here: Facebook // Youtube
The festival was extremely successful. The energy was next-level and everyone I talked to during the event was enjoying it. I had the opportunity to spend time with Ricardo and Paula from Afrolatin Connection. Filming Sara and Jojo was also another highlight.
The event was a success due to the promoters. They are extremely friendly and warm-hearted individuals who truly love the dance, community, and music. They know how to have a good time and throw a good event. It all starts from the top down when running a large festival. I foresee positive challenges for 2017 as they will be faced with the decision to find a larger location to meet the increase in dancers.
Here some videos from the festival. Until next year Montreal!!!
