Testimonial

Our Ginga Boo Kizomba Festival UK – June 2023 Edition was a great success, here is what some of the dancers are saying about it...

I’m back home now after an exceptionally wonderful weekend at the Ginga Boo UK Kizz Festival in Milton Keynes. Everyone who was there already knows how brilliant it was, but here’s my report for anyone else interested. The elements contributing to the perfection were: firstly, Sonny Varela’s superb organisation, assisted by a large team of hardworking helpers, her attention to detail and concern to ensure everyone was happy and enjoying themselves; also, a perfect venue - the silky smooth wooden floor and the high domed ceiling of the modern Church of Christ The Cornerstone made for heavenly dancing; the fantastic music all weekend from a team of excellent DJs; great workshops taught by the very best teachers; spectacular performances on Saturday night from the fabulous Christina Mcintosh, the absolutely gob-smackingly amazing Jeydikson Lima and the Ginga Boo ladies performance team; the friendliness and positive energy of all the festival goers and the high standard of dancing. Sheer bliss!

I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for organising such a spectacular Gingaboo Kizomba Festival 2023 in Milton Keynes! It was hands down the best festival I have ever attended. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it and it would not have been possible without all of your hard work and effort. The location of the festival was absolutely stunning and the smooth dance floors made for a seamless dance experience. The night show was beyond amazing with the Gingaboo ladies team shining so bright. The event was so well-organised, which is a true testament to the amount of effort you both put into it. What also really stood out for me was the amazing dancers who were there. Each one brought great energy to the dance floor and made every dance a memorable experience. The atmosphere was electric and all thanks to your expertise in curating such an amazing event. I can't thank you both enough for all that you have done. It was an unforgettable experience that I will never forget. You both are truly an inspiration for dancers and festival organisers alike. Thank you so much again for giving us this incredible opportunity. You can be sure that I will be attending every festival that you both organise in the future!PS: Saturday 5 am, I almost cried when the party finished as I still wanted to dance, anybody relate with me herethe fabulous Christina Mcintosh, the absolutely gob-smackingly amazing Jeydikson Lima and the Ginga Boo ladies performance team; the friendliness and positive energy of all the festival goers and the high standard of dancing.

Congrats to all the team ... organising any event is never easy but absolutely smashing it is something else. Its in the diary A big well done to the one and only organiser of this festival - Sonny Varela aka Miss Ginga Boo. I know people saw me running around during the festival looking very focused at times (thank you to all who reminded me to smile) but this lady has worked tirelessly to make this festival a success since the last years festival. This festival was a success because of her. Even with all the unplanned stresses that happened during the festival, she still managed to keep a level head and deal with them. I considered myself privileged to see some of the work that has been involved behind the scenes to make the festival a success. Her work ethic, determination and resilience is simply insane and inspiring.The location of the festival was absolutely stunning and the smooth dance floors made for a seamless dance experience.

I had fun for sure and loads of good dances, still my favourite UK festival. The venue is beautiful to dance in. Djs in the main room were great, I really enjoyed Sunday too when there was a mix of music, nothing to hardcore urban which kept me dancing all the time.

Beautiful words Sonny ... It was an immense pleasure having you teaching for us at TLC Kizomba and Southampton kizombeiros will never forget that evening! ???? But the biggest pleasure for me has been getting to know you over the year and becoming your friend ?. I learnt a lot by seeing you working, and if I have to chose a few words to define you would be ‘the one that has the passion and strength to follow her dreams and make them come true’ And that my dear friend is the gift you give to people, passion and strength ? Cheers to you and to the New Year, 2018 we are ready!! ????
