Dancing is our celebration of life. We invite you to celebrate your passion in the heat of the summer in Berlin.
Our mission has always been to bring dancers together from all over the world for a weekend of dance in Berlin. Now we go a step further and invite you to join us in plain summer! We can't offer you beach or sea or pool parties. True that. But we will offer you to dance outdoors in the sun in daytime with a breathtaking view including the sunset and to live your passion at night indoors on up to three dancefloors. Located in a city which is truly reachable from all over Europe and in a location which is easily accessible from the airport and main station.
We will offer you what we can do best: Focusing on high level Social Dancing from midday to midnight (and longer on Saturday), a bunch of amazing Choreography Bootcamps for the super advanced and adding a number of workshops for those who want to improve their skills, and we will be featuring once again the best Stargate Shows in our community. On Sunday we will present the results of the bootcamps and the winner of the Stargate Shows, but there won't be no more shows beside those six shows.
You will meet an amazing line up of some of the best instructors in our worldwide community on the spot in Berlin. Additionally to offer you even more we will have some great artists streamed to Berlin for some exclusive workshops:
- Ernesto & Denisse (New York
- De'Jon & Clo (New Orleans)
- Terry & Cecile (Marseille/Paris)
- Andy & Yuliet (Oslo)
All those which have already purchased their passes will receive also receive exclusive access to some online classes with those instructors before the event in June and July.

From our very beginning in autumn 2001, Berlin Salsacongress’s mission has always been to bring people together in one spot from all over the world to share our passion for dancing. Fortunately we have been able to help building a worldwide community gathered around our love for dancing.
We don't think so. We believe restrictions - even though much fewer - will still be in place. But chances are good that with vaccination starting in the first quarter of 2021 there will be less restrictions in summer time and it is more likely we will be able to travel in summer time, but restrictions might kick in again for autumn. So we made a bold move and moved from October to August.
For lovers of social dancing such as us - and you - there is truly nothing which can replace to meet and dance with our friends from so many places in the world. It is truly unfortunate that the COVID-19 pandemic brought all what we have achieved in decades to a sudden stop, but in 2021 we will be back, albeit still on a smaller scale and less international than usual.
If you missed dancing and meeting your friends in those crazy months behind us, now there is something to look for - to meet your friends finally face to face again, to chat and enjoy life, to learn new skills, and to dance to the music of some of the best DJ's in our community.
We prepared a series of Online Classes with some of the best worldwide instructors to get you ready and to warm you up for Berlin Salsacongress 2021. We will also offer you a number of webinars with relevant themes, details coming soon. All those are completely free for those which already got their tickets!
At the One Family - Global Edition in October 2020 we first introduced to stream some of the most talented DJ`s in our community to our local socials. Now with this experience we made back in October, we will continue and stream some of our favorite artists to the summer edition in Berlin in 2021 as an addition to those great DJ's which will be with us in Berlin. This way we can offer you truly the most amazing DJ Line Up possible at that point in time. In Berlin you will certainly dance to the best music you could imagine.
Those talented DJ's will be streamed to Berlin:

A choreography bootcamp challenges you in many different ways. It is not about the choreography or the technique. It is much more about making friends. Expanding your limits. A Bootcamp is pain and sweat and the amazing feeling when you overcome every obstacle. And this feeling when you perform in front of a large and enthusiastic audience on stage. Are you ready for this?!
A choreography bootcamp is much more than simply learning a choreography. The most important part is the attention of your instructor and their ability to see you and correct you and make you feel what they feel. Something which can't be done online.
There are no other Stargate Shows in our community with such crazy atmosphere. If you haven' t experienced it until now, then it is truly time.
If you want to showcase your talent to a crazy international audience, this would be your chance. Only limited number of spots available. Only teams, no solo shows.
Make sure you support your favorite team as much as possible by screaming like hell. Winning here is about the support of your friends.
We are here to answer your questions. If you have any questions, comments or feedback, please feel free to write to us. Unless we are travelling, we will answer your email in between hours, sometimes minutes.
