  • I was very impressed by Jorge Camaguey Izalguez. This dancer with sparkling sense of humour, deep understanding life and its values really inspired me. He put us on the way forward. It was interesting to listen to him and learn from him. After his workshops I felt a sudden burst of energy followed by great determination to further self development and acs of kindness. Many thanks to the organisers!

  • Thanks to everyone!!! The level of the instructors at Timbafest is really something! I can’t find the right words to describe my feelings and gratitude to the instructors who have been sharing with us the knowledge, the culture and great energy during the festival. I can say only “Woooooow! It was awesome!!!”. And all this live music made me choke with emotion. Thank you all a lot!!! My only regret is that I couldn’t visit all the workshops at the same time. :))))

  • Now here are my notes about Timbafest)) It was more than awesome!! The parties, the live concerts were breathtaking! I was really pleased with the level of the instructors and the workshops. I mean..it’s the best fest ever!!!! All the organisers and people who arranged the festival (Armen, Vitaliy, Sergey, Nina, Masha, Olya, Irina…) deserve respect and admiration! Thank you, guys, a lot! Also, many thanks to the musicians at the workshops, it would have been different without them. In short, Timbafest 2014 is no like other event in Russia. I’ve never been to anything like this. It’s the least part of what I want to say and express in words. We’ll definitely come to the festival again next year
