The St. Martin DP Dance Salsa Festival is 4 days of salsa festivities. The opening of the festival is announced by the Pre-Party, Thursday 11, at the West Indies Mall, where “salseros” from Guadeloupe and Martinique will join those from St. Martin and elsewhere to dance to the rhythms of International djs. Our international artists will happily mingle with festival-goers from this first night; The shows presented by our internationals  will take place on Friday 12 and Saturday 13 at the Casino Royale in Maho from 21 p.m. The workshops will take place Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 at Sonesta. 

Festival-goers can then improve their skills during the various courses given during these 2 sessions. Sunday afternoon  it's the Pool-Party at the Divi Resort in a festive and friendly atmosphere. The Sunday evening After, which will take place at the Duplex in Orient Bay,  will close the festival. It will be the last opportunity to dance with each other, with the international dancers who will have given the best of their art during these 4 days.

It will also be the opportunity for all Saint-Martin (French and Dutch parties) to attend two evenings of sumptuous shows presented by the best dancers on the international salsa scene. No need to run the world, these prestigious  international dancers will  present on our island, offering grandiose shows, giving courses of very high quality, mingling with good heart to the festival-goers during these 4 days.

Irma forced us to cancel the festival in 2018 but there St. Martin is recovering and more than  the association has never decided to anchor the festival in the memory of salseros from around the world and to make it a lasting event offering great prospects for Saint-Martin in terms of cultural tourism.

You should know that the "salseros" from around the world are used to traveling around the world to attend this type of event. 

Saint-Martin, the Caribbean island par excellence, is the perfect place for this type of international festival. Indeed, the island is at the crossroads of the great strongholds of salsa: Cuba, Puerto Rico, New York, Santo Domingo, Curaçao ... Thus, hundreds of salseros from the Caribbean, the United States, and even from Europe will then be able, through this festival, to discover the island of Saint-Martin.

Tickets are on sale at La Boutique Lacoste, West Indies Mall,  The change of Hope Estate, The 3 changes Global Transfer in Marigot, the tobacco press in Orient Bay.

The St. Martin DP Dance Salsa Festival, a quality cultural event not to be missed!
