Get your dancing shoes on and your colourful clothes out, St Kilda will turn Latin for a whole weekend! This three-day festival (22nd to 24th February) St Kilda Latin Festival will take place in the O'Donnell Gardens and is FREE. And don't worry if you don't know any of the Latin American dance steps, there will be dance classes all day.
There will also be stalls selling South American food, lots of music performances, art and artists, a large Latin beer garden and so much more. The beach environment will add a great ambience as you dance, listen to music and enjoy the infectious Latin joy of life and rhythm at this event. With Latin American musicians and artists taking over this part of St Kilda, you can get at taste of what life is like in South America.
So you better get ready and learn what all these words mean - Samba, Tango, Salsa, Reggaeton, Capoeira, Cumbia, and Bachata!
