Rueda Congress Monday morning. Our bodies feels like concrete, but we are bursting with joy and happiness after spending 4 days in Rueda heaven with our Rueda family of 29 artists, 30 volunteers and more than 200 dancers.

The artist team this year had a very special, magic spirit that boosted all of us. Thank you for inspiring workshops, lots of great, social rueda dancing, great music from the djs, and a Big Thank You to the one-and-only Moe Flex, for adding you magic flavour to the parties!

Again we wish to thank our fantastic Volunteer team, you have worked so many hours, day and night, always with that big smile and finding solutions to any challenge during the event.

Finally, we feel so proud, humble and honoured to receive more than 200 Rueda-geeks from various continents every single year, to see your happy faces and get this incredible one-big-rueda-family-feeling.

LOVE was definitely in the Air all over these 4 days!

Countdown for a reunion during the 17th edition in Malaga has started…
