Check Out the Chosen

Teachers

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

Any teacher, literally from anywhere in the World was 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.

With this step we want to give the 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.

End now here are the chosen teachers for this year’s Festial!
