Ginga Boo Kizz Festival UK – Milton Keynes #GBKF – 3rd Edition


Our Ginga Boo Kizz Festival UK – Milton Keynes #GBKF – 3rd Edition - Gallery


Our Ginga Boo Kizz Festival UK – Milton Keynes #GBKF – 3rd Edition was a great success, here is what some of the dancers are saying about it...

what an amazing weekend. I don't think there are words to describe my feelings properly, but I try. Firstly, it exceeded all my expectations. It was so great to get together with so many people from the local dance community and also from all over the UK and Europe, and learn from the most amazing teachers. I have been in love with Kizomba ever since I saw the first demo on Facebook years ago. Even the pandemic couldn't change that. Festivals like this show you how powerful dancing is in creating connections on the dancefloor and outside of the dancefloor. I am eternally grateful for the true friends I met through dancing but who are here for me outside of dancing too. This weekend felt like a celebration of our friendship too. I am also grateful for the dance teachers, organisers, DJ's, volunteers, fellow dancers who passionately and patiently support the dancers. Please keep spreading the love of music and dance. It is making a massive difference in people's lives. Thank you so much Sonny Varela for organising such an amazing event in our city. You are an amazing woman with style, passion, strength and perseverance. ❤

Sonny Varela & team for a very successful event. The line up for this event was amazing but it wasn't about the names but about the character of these names, when we came back to teaching at the beginning of the year I said to a few artists that this year felt different, in a good way... We are all together and that togetherness is felt by the ones around us, our Kizomba UK Artists are more united than ever before and we are all working as a team to build back our dance scene, the energy in the room when we are together is something else, and this video below reflects just that.. look at the smiles of all the artists watching our colleagues getting presented and we all getting silly with each other, Sonny Varela is not just about the festival but the little things you do, you are part of this change and as always I will always support you because of that. keep up the amazing work you are doing ❤ Thank you Maria Solukova for recording some epic moments of this amazing weekend (please make us look good) ahah 🤗 & thank you Karen Chau for all the Photos 😃 To all the students a big thank you for joining our classes and being keen for learning more and more, for sharing some great moments on the dance floor & thank you for supporting events just like this ❤ Make sure you leave a like on our page to follow us!
