Some important updates about the event

Taking bags into theTempodrom

Please note that due to increased security regulations for all public events (like us) it is not allowed any more to take bags bigger then an A4 page into the Tempodrom. Please come with bags as small as possible and take only the absolutely nessesary with you. We apologize for the inconvenince but those are security regulations we need to follow.

Taking coats & bags into the Big Arena

Please note also that for the same security regulations it is not possible any more to take big bags and hand bags (everything bigger than a shoe bag) into the Big Arena at night. Also all coats and jackets have to be left at the coat check and can NOT be taken into the Big Arena. The Tempodrom will double the number of people working at the coat checks and open a second coat check in order to avoid cues.

Taking drinks into the Academies

Note that it is not allowed to take your own drinks into the Tempodrom nor into the Academy rooms at the hotels. That will be checked at the entrance. Please make sure the security check is as fast as possible by not trying to bring drinks into the Academies.

At the Tempodrom they will sell the water in day time for a very reduced price.

At the Crowne Plaza they will open a Bar just for you where they sell water & soft drinks for reasonable prices.

Make it easy for you. And for us. Do not bring your own drinks.

Those are regulations set by the venues. We need to follow them. Berlin Salsacongress does NOT run the bars nor do we get any share off the bars.

Video taping

Please note that it is strictly forbidden to tape the shows. Main shows, Stargate Shows, Sensual Shows. Please do not try. 

The Academies can be taped after instructors gave permission. Respect your instructors and do not tape during the Academies.

In the Masterclasses it is NOT allowed to tape at any time, also not at the end. there will be NO demo at the end. We will produce a professional tape for each Masterclass which we will share with the attendees of each individual Masterclass.

The Big Money Machine

Then it’s time to have a serious talk!  Come hear the secrets of early bird discounts and getting access to restricted and secret groups where you can get huge discounts. But also passive and other stream of incomes.   Well let’s talk about The Big Money Machine! A brand new seminar by Flairs of Dandy® presented by Adric Walter. Subscribe to the idea of having a Money Machine. This seminar will teach you in how to shift your mindstate to endless possibilities of abundance and wealth so you can travel to as many dance festivals that you want - and even more. 


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.

Take your time and explore the possibilities our new concept offers you

Find out what the new, revolutionary concept does contain.

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 2000+ people on a huge stage. Are you ready for this?!  

This video shows you impressions of the choreography bootcamps at Berlin Salsacongress for the last 4 years. Look at those faces and you will feel what it means to take on the challenge.
