2016 Dance Events & Festivals in Malaysia
For friends visiting Malaysia and looking for Dance related events and festivals to attend, here's a list you can look through as a reference. Mind you, it might not be a complete list but I will do what I can do update whenever I find out new events and festivals especially those outside of the Latin Dance community.

Also, this list DOES NOT INCLUDE WORKSHOPS as that will make this list super long as there are tons of workshops happening almost on a weekly basis on the various genre of dances. If you feel that I left any out, do feel free to contact me via the Contact Form or via my Social Media channels.
