Check Out and Choose Your Favourite


This year the decisive change in Europe’s Greatest Festival is the new system of choosing teachers. Each participant gets the chance to choose 9 different teachers, take a peek at every teachers that applied to give lessons at Forró de Domingo Festival 2017.

So, register now and tell us which teachers you choose for the 2017 festival! You only get to pick 9 out of +50 once you are registered!

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 will be attributed to teachers coming from Brazil and 11 to teachers from Europe, Russia, Japan or anywhere else. The voting closes 3 months before the festival begins.

With this step we hope to give the opportunity to every Forró teacher in Europe and Brazil (and beyond) to be part of this 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.
