I loved the Brazilian open because of the location, the people and the energy.
Fortaleza and the area around has some of the most beautiful beaches and I loved the warm weather. The people were so welcoming and warm, I felt like family.
The best part of the Brazilian open is the energy that is created by a big group of people who is excited to be there, learn, grow and share their dancing with each other. Well that and the 2 fresh coconuts I drank every day.

I was a staff member, DJ, for the First Brazilian Open, reporting to Jessica Pacheco, Event Director. I found the Brazilian community to be most gracious, hospitable and very friendly. I had a wonderful time and would recommend this event to any dancer. You will have a ball!
Matt Auclair, St. Louis - USA
The Brazilian Open was so much fun! Such a great equal amount of great instruction with fun moments. The staff are professional, friendly and very talented. I hope to get the opportunity to go back soon.
Lindsay Misttreta, Massachusttes - USA
This event is so much more than a west coast swing convention. It is family, love, support, culture, laughter, energy, and relaxation, all in one. The staff is incredible to work with and learn from, and the dancers are attentive, driven, and extremely talented. This community welcomed me like no community ever has- with open arms, warm smiles, and lots of Cachaça! The Brazilian Open is an event you’ll never want to end! If you haven’t been yet, you can’t miss this year!
Craig Jackson, Dallas - USA
The Brazilian Open is a special event.
The dancers are very musical and are super friendly. About 40% of the dancers speak English and are happy to translate for you. So, don’t think you need to speak Portuguese to attend.
The staff at the event is amazing organized. They will help get connected with Brazilian dancers if you need rides or share Uber’s to see the city.
If, you are coming from the US the exchange rate is very good. It was 4-1 last year. Your airline ticket will be your most expensive part of the trip.
The Brazilian is one of the best events I have attended. It’s truly a great dance event with a mini vacation along with it.
