Check Out the Chosen

Teachers

Europe’s Greatest Festival is using its choosing teachers system one more time.

Every participant get the chance to choose 9 different teachers, taking a peek between all forró teachers that applied to give lessons at Forró de Domingo Festival 2018.

Any teacher, literally from anywhere in the World is able to register as long as they regularly give forró classes where they live, and/or they have a long term name within the Forró.

There is a total of 15 teaching spots, 4 is attributed to teachers coming from Brazil and 11 to teachers from Europe, Russia, Japan or anywhere else. The choosing system is now closed. We opened the register for the teachers 2018 Forró de Domingo Festival!

With this step we give opportunity to every Forró teacher in Europe and Brazil (and beyond) to be part of this forró wave. And we hope that dancing forró through 4 days and nights together, we can really make a significant contribution to the Forró movement as One.
