This festival will have many renowned international dance instructors from various countries taking part in it.

It will not only see performances by these dancing legends but will also have workshops where everyone can get to learn different dance forms and also shake a leg.

This festival consists of events like dance battles, the Hip-Hop Championship and B Boy battle, where the winner has a chance to win Rs 1 lakh; workshops, performances and electrifying parties. The fest will see dance gods like Johnny Vazquez, known as Prince of Salsa, Jaime Jesus and Little Liz, Liliana Vazquez, who was awarded the Salsa Ambassador Award, B-boy Lilou, B-boy Pelezinho and B-boy Big Toni.

The fest will also give Indian dancers the opportunity to meet their foreign counterparts and exchange dancing tips with them.

“We have enquiries coming in from Singapore and Malaysia. This itself proves the popularity of hip-hop and salsa. It is picking up at a great speed in India as well. We will have more than 50 participating teams, both amateur and professional. The workshops are open to both dancer and non dancers. It is a forum where one can meet dancers from other countries as well,” informed Nandakumar, marketing head for LDI.

“The participants have to bring their own music and can dance to any possible song. There are no restrictions on music,” he added.

The LDI was launched in 2007 in collaboration with Latin Dance Australia.
Sai and Kirthi, the foundation stones of LDI have represented India in over 15 countries and have won titles in International Championships and are also the first Indian duo to perform at the ESPN World Salsa Championship in the USA.
The LDI in association with Club Nero get together every Tuesday for the ‘Step Up LDI Parties’.
