Reinventing Berlin Salsacongress. Join the future!

We believe, sometimes we need to change

We see the world we live in is changing a lot and after talking to many people we decided to make some crucial changes to our very own concept, a concept which has been working for our events for many years. Our aim with those changes is to make it more attractive AND effective for you to take part in workshops and we want you to take home the best experience and memories.

Introducing our Academies, a new learning concept

All workshops will be organized in blocks of progressive workshops of 4 hours dedicated to a dance style or theme, for example Salsa on2, or Kizomba. Those blocks we call „Academies“. On Friday we will have 4 Academies parallel, on Saturday & Sunday 7 Academies. 

For performers (incl. Stargate performers) we will offer a separate "Academy of the Performing Arts" where performers will learn and deepen those abilities related to performing.

On Saturday Afternoon we will offer a number of short Academies with 2h each for Advanced and Master Level.

We will ask you to make a choice and sign in

After you registered we will eventually ask you to sign in for the Academies you have purchased. Signing in for an Academy is not a final decision, you will still be able to swap between Academies, even on the spot, though we do not encourage you to do so, as they are progressive units of learning. 

You will get the attention you deserve

Signing in to one Academy allows us to manage better the size of each group and the gender ratio and it allows us to assign the appropriate workshop room to each Academy. Overcrowded workshops could be a thing of the past.

Better results with progressive learning

Each Academy will be taught by 3 or 4 artists/teams together. A coordinated concept will be created ahead of the event and adapted to the avarage level of the group if needed. The aim is to have a wholesome learning experience where the different instructors truly work together to give you the best of all worlds

We will also introduce a new labelling system for the level of each Academy using a scale from 1 to 10, allowing you to classify yourself better and choosing your preferred Academies more accurately.

Choose your theme or dance by day

When signing in for your Academies you can choose a different theme/dance for each day. Or you stay with one dance for all three days and focus. Or you join an Academy only for one or 2 days. It is up to you. It is your choice. As mentioned before, you can still change your mind at any time and sign in for another academy.
