CSSF is a very beginner friendly festival ;) Beginners are more than welcome - we've even separated one workshop track during the weekend workshops only for beginners.

At the festival all beginners will be able to experience the best from our international instructors, enjoy their dancing, professional and friendly approach. 

It's time to dance! ;)

Lost and found will be in the festival registration office in Adris Old Tobacco Factory, during office working hours. Feel free to ask our festival staff about it and check it if you need to (hope not ;)).

We recommend you to leave your stuff in our cloakroom! Organizer does not take responsibility for lost or stolen items. 

Rovinj is a small town, but it has a rich gastro offer.

Well-known, natural and healthy Adriatic cuisine along with regular world cuisine offers are a great way to fulfill your stay in Rovinj.

We recommend the official festival restaurant MAESTRAL - a great place for each meal with excellent and always fresh and tasty food. Good atmosphere and irresistible view just go great together. For more info check here

Your own food and drinks are permitted only at the workshops. You can bring also a small bottle of water to the party.

There will bachata and kizomba floors, but the main focus of this festival is salsa. If you're more interested in bachata then we'd recommend you to visit Summer Sensual Days in Opatija and Rovinj where the focus is more on bachata and kizomba then on salsa.
