2018, notre second festival, un nouveau rêve    éveillé...

Grâce à    tous les participants bien sur, mais aussi grâce     à    tous les artistes ci-dessous

qui nous ont fait l'honneur d’être     parmi nous.  

C’était    "TOPPPEEEE"

"A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality" (J. Lennon).

We cannot express how grateful we are. Sometimes words aren't enough to express feelings.
We couldn't believe our luck last year with he 1st edition.

So many of you that trusted us, it was unbelievable.
And there you are, this year again. This means the world to us.

So thank you, first of all to all the participants.  Without you, this wouldnt be.

Thank you for trusting our work, thank you for coming all the way to Nice to meet us and dance with us.

I am sure we can still improve things but you have to know that every step

of that festival was built thinking of you and your well being. 
We hope we havent disappointed you,

we hope we made you smile and helped you living wonderful moments.

Moment that were surely created as well thanks to the musiciens.

Thanks to Forro Garrig (with Elsa, Vanessa, Jerome and Italo), Fabiano Santana, Diego Oliveira and Forro Ducana (with Joao and Victor), we all lived magical moments.

Your music, your energy, your talent and passion were incredible to witness and to feel.

Thank you for accepting to come here and for those incredible shows.

Let's not forget the DJ, James Lima - as well as Arnaud Cohen (from Paris) on Sunday night - the music was just perfect for everyone to enjoy, from roots to universitario and with some originals songs,

you put everyone together, well done and thank you for being here too.

He was our saver, doing an amazing job during the whole festival when it came to sound check, and kept smiling all the way, on top of taking pictures and recording movies,

Wallison, you have been amazing, thank you. 
Thank you to the gracious Marta too for helping with the pictures
and therefore saving precious moment.

Alexandra, Cleiton, Rafael, Tiago, Renato, Marilia, Claudel, Vanessa, Italo...

Teachers yes, but not just. Those are people who travel the world to transmit their knowledge, and who take pride when they see you improving your dance moves. They are like a smile distributor, how nice.

Thank you for accepting our invitation, for teaching yes, but for teaching with so much care and passion.

You were a super team to have (TOPPPPPPEEEE kkk).
Thank you as well to Sarah and Martina for your help.

A special thank you for a person who's been part of "my" forro world from the very beginning.

He is a fabulous dancer, a skillful teacher, a musician full of energy and the father of Nayala. 
Anax, thank you for all your help with the festival and even more importantly,

thank you for your presence, it means a lot.

The "Forro de Nice" team definitely shouldn't be forgotten. I said it last year, I will always do,

your are the most beautiful gift of our story here in Nice.

Your devotion, your kindness move me like you have no idea. We are so proud to have you next to us.

Thank you for everything you helped with this year again.

She is the one that came up with the idea of having our own song.

She started last year, made another one this year. And when I see people dancing on it, singing,

I m so proud of you, Alexandra Geghardt, so grateful as well. Every of the words you sing mean so much more to us...

Nina, my childish friend, my partner in crime, thank you for trusting my crazy dreams and helping me realizing them. Without you, none of that would have ever happened.

In short, all of you together, you are the best reward I could ever dream of related to my forro experience. So again, MERCI.

We received so much love this weekend, its the best drug ever. We are addict. So we might do it all again next year.
