Country of the month: Colombia
Dance the Night Away
If you enjoy salsa, there is a festival in Colombia just for you! It is the World Salsa Festival in Cali, the salsa capital of the world. In fact, people in Cali dance the salsa in every social gathering; be it in clubs, in bars, and in any kind of celebration. During the World Salsa Festival, over 4,000 local, national, and even international dancers join the party. Music groups, singers, and other artists perform during the celebration. Other activities such as salsa lessons, workshops, and discussions on dance take place. This festival lasts 8 days in August, so make sure you get a good pair of dancing shoes!
