music - we care! our dj´s meet the dancers


After a really good success at Berlin Salsacongress 2016, we decided to continue the discussion in 2017. Let´s admit it, as dancers we ALWAYS complain about the music of the DJ´s. Lately we saw dancers blaming the DJ´s for not dancing. So here is the chance for everybody to TALK about it - face to face. Talking however doesn´t mean complaining or accusing. We felt that there is a need to express from side of the dancers what we really want. And also from the side of the DJ´s what it is to be a DJ, what is there mission and how do they try to accomplish their mission. Hopefully at the end we want everybody to walk out of the room and have a better understanding of what the others want. To make sure we come to an understanding we will have DJ Shems (Tunisia) which is also a passionate Social Dancer to moderate the discussion. Join us for this opportunity to bring forward our community.

The comedy club - Stand up comedy with leon rose & luis vazquez


coffee lounge "offline" hosted by olu olu


The COFFEE LOUNGE is based on a very popular discussion panel Olu Olu is iniciating every Friday on facebook integrating many times a lot of people in the discussion of a popular topic related to our passion: dance and everything related to it ! In 2014 we brought this format for the first time offline and since then it has been copied many times. You will be able to discuss live with Olu Olu and his featured guests in total three topics.

We will dedicate 30 minutes to discuss each topic with views sought from the floor. We will get the audience, we will get you, involved. Every now and then a show of hands to see what the general opinion is with the topic discussed. The moderator will then summarize and bring discussion to a close.
