At Berlin Salsacongress the shows are unlike anything you have seen so far in our community. Watch yourself.
For many years already we feature show productions and themed nights which connect all three nights though one theme. The theme in 2018 is "West Side Story".
Same as in 2017 on Friday we will have only a short showcase of 7 or 8 shows, maximum length will be 30 min, starting at midnight. On Saturday and Sunday each night the shows will start at 10 PM sharp and will be around 80-90 min long.
At Berlin Salsacongress on Saturday & Sunday night nobody needs to stand through the show production. 3000 seats will certainly cater for everybody.
We know as performers you are looking to enhance a different set of skills than usual attendees. That is why we created the School of Performing Arts. the first of its kind. You will not find this opportunity anywhere else.
If you have a Performer Dance & Fun Pass you can purchase an Upgrade School of Performing Arts at any time for only 25€. Maximum number of attendees in School of Performing Arts is 100.
In the School of Performing Arts our focus is on putting across and enhance those skills which are needed to execute a great and entertaining show. We will work on your individual presence on stage, your connection with the audience, stunts, speed & timing, turning skills, body tension, and proper interpretation of the music. The focus will not be to learn new combinations or footwork, even though they might be used to train and demonstrate the aspects mentioned above.
