The Latin American countries are rich in song and dance. Take a blend of native Indian, African and Spanish cultures, mixed and shaken, and voila! You have a potent, intoxicating cocktail of dance and music. This recipe for fun and the coming together of people from all walks of life is spreading around the world at a feverish rate.
The Byron Latin Fiesta focus is on the essence of Latin music and dance and therefore it takes a rather grassroots approach to what it offers. Byron Bay has a long history of a grassroots approach. This helps to retain a connection to the pulse that inspires all things new. It is one of the main reasons that we feel that Byron Bay is the perfect place for a Latin Fiesta – that and the fact that Byron Bay is as close to Latin America (geographically speaking) as you can get in Australia!
The Byron Latin Fiesta also acknowledges that Latin dance and music is popular worldwide and increasingly so! Australia plays host to world Salsa champion couples and teams. It also services many Latin dance schools, bands, DJs, promoters, event agencies and the like. The Byron Latin Fiesta is a great platform for all these talents to come together to showcase their services to their industry fellows while also to educate and excite newcomers.
The Byron Latin Fiesta creates an opportunity for the Latin dance industry and the community to come together through an authentic experience of Latin music and dance.
The Fiesta aims to expand the awareness of Latin culture on the north coast of NSW and help the Latin dance industry grow as a whole in Australia and internationally.
The fiesta runs from November 4 to 6 at the Great Northern Hotel, Byron Bay Brewery and the Owl & Pussycat.
