Freiburg Forró Marathon September 2018


SOLD OUT! No Tickets at the door!

Dear Participants of the Freiburg Forró Marathon September 2018,

prepare yourself to the next weekend and read these additional information, please!

Our facebook page “Forrozin Freiburg” is blocked. But you can find all information here on our website.

Remember that the marathon is going to be in a tango location that has a special and expensive dance floor. Street shoes are not allowed! Bring clean shoes or dance with havaianas or barefoot.

Be quite at the entrance of the location, especially when you arrive or leave. Respect the neighbors!

We will open a small and simple bar for you. We have beer, water, lemonade, but no caipirinhas. It´s too much work ? You are free to bring you own drinks.

Some workshops are called “advanced”. This means that they are more difficult. If they are too hard for you, you don´t have to force yourself to do them. Be gentle to yourself and to the other participants. Otherwise everybody will suffer ?

Stay tuned here or via “Marathon”

Freiburg Forró Festival 2018

Buy your ticket here.

Dear Forrozeir@s,

we are doing it again! Workshops and parties! Teachers of various Forró styles, daytime and nighttime concerts and DJ-sets, great artists, some old friends, some new friends – these all await you in Freiburg later this year! In the meantime, we – the members of Forrózin Freiburg – are doing our best to create a hearty and familiar atmosphere at the festival for you!

So that everyone could participate, you are free to choose the prices for your tickets, depending on what you are able to contribute:

Full Passes: 105€-125€

Party Passes: 55€-75€

Little detail about Friday night: the official party finishes at 1 a.m. For those who can’t stop dancing, we offer an after-party with limited tickets which can be purchased for 5€ as add-ons at the online registration. As organisers, we try to provide the quality which our festival represents, so because of the limited offer and high lease prices in Freiburg, we decided to book a location that closes its doors earlier but where we can enjoy a good sound and best dance conditions possible. So why not try a new format?! Thank you for understanding!

There will be a few sleeping places in classrooms available for two nights (Friday to Sunday) for those who cannot find accommodation. Alternatively, you might want to take a look at the Couchsurfing Group in Facebook.


 * If you click on the event in the calendar you will see a more detailed description as well as the address of the venue.

Stay tuned for more information…

Workshops with Felipe & Ana

Dear Forrozeir@s,

we are happy to kick off the new season of classes in E-Werk with a Special Workshop! On September 4th we will have an opportunity to learn from two highly professional teachers Felipe Raso and Ana Flávia from Brazil, who have kindly agreed to come to Freiburg as part of their Europe Tour. The teachers represent dance school Pé Descalço. Their forró is infused with sophisticated figures, shared musicality and individual styling. As teachers, Felipe and Ana are very knowledgeable, attentive to detail and very charismatic! Confirmed by many, it’s enormous fun to be in their classes, too!

They will give two classes, primarily aiming at the intermediate level, however advanced dancers, as well as less experienced learners, are welcome to join us, too!
