Rotterdam has a brand-new Latin dance event! Rotterdam Latin Festival, or RLF, is the first three-day Latin dance weekender in Rotterdam. So, if Latin dancing is the meaning and purpose of your life, then you’ll be in heaven, immersing yourself in kizomba, bachata and salsa for three full days.

For many, a night out in a Dutch bar or club is not complete without dancing some salsa, bachata or kizomba. Those seasoned in the Latin dance world will be thrilled that kizomba queen Sara Lopéz is coming to the Netherlands to give workshops during Rotterdam Latin Festival and she’ll also enter the most fun dance battles.
