At Berlin Salsacongress we have an absolutely fantastic and supportive audience at the Stargate shows! Simply dive into this video a bit and you will understand. At our event the audience is selecting the winners through cheering and this turns out to be just perfect. We did choose this way as we believe at such a competition it is all about entertaining the audience and not about technical perfection a jury would be looking for. Again watch yourself how that turns out!
The Stargate shows at Berlin Salsacongress are outstanding by their incredible atmosphere you literally won't find anywhere else. Performing here is simply special. But well, images and videos speak louder than words, check out on our YouTube channel what happened at Stargate 2023!
The Stargate shows offer the opportunity for student teams and any performers to showcase their talent to an amazing international audience. The winners are chosen by the audience through cheering and screaming, which is part of why it is so amazing to perform here. Our audience supports every team. But there is every day only one winner.
Please note that there is a maximum number of 11 spots every day. Once filled all spots, the Stargate is completed and we can't accept more teams.
The winners of every day will be performing on Sunday night at 9PM. They receive also a valuable trophy in a short ceremony in front of our crazy audience.
Just as in 2021 & 2022, the Stargate Shows will also be streamed LIVE to the internet, and this way all your friends, fans and students can watch your show, even if they are not physically present! In 2021 we had an additional 1200 viewers every day for the Stargate shows. Additionally we will upload all the Stargate Shows to our YouTube channel and through an online poll, we will select an additional Online Stargate Winner giving you an extra chance to win. The winners in the online poll get free access to the 2024 event and will perform on Saturday night. In 2023 almost a 3500 people participated just in the online poll!
Every team can apply to perform in the Stargate, there is no selection process other then the limited number of spots we have. Note that there must be at least two dancers performing, we do not accept solo shows for the Stargate.
Each performer purchases a discounted Dance & Fun Pass for 69€ (does not include workshops) or a Performer 3day Basic Pass for 109€ (includes workshops).
If a performer drops out of the team until the event, they can be substituted by the team leader for another performer (name change). If a performer drops out of the team until the event and is not substituted by another performer, their pass will be declared void. They can keep their pass by paying the price difference to a regular pass at the time of registration. Performer Passes are by default non refundable.
There will be this year Stargate shows on Saturday and Sunday (and if we have enough teams, also on Friday). ALL teams must be available for ALL days, as the order of shows and day of performing will be set by us 2 weeks before the event. You can NOT choose your day of performing. The winners will be presented all in one final showcase on SUNDAY evening at 9PM.
Please note that after your application has been confirmed, you need to register your team members in between 7 days and the performer passes need to be purchased in the same timeline. Without payments your application is void and your spot will be given to the next team applying.
Please note that rehearsal for each Stargate showcase is at the day of performing before the first workshop of the day. In order to perform you must have rehearsed your show in that time.
