The European Same-Sex Dance Championships 2017 is coming to Berlin!

The ESSDA has decided that pinkballroom Berlin will be the host of the European Same-Sex Daberlin 2017 logo essdance Championships in 2017!


Actually, the European Championships take place within the EuroGames, just as the World Championships are a part of the GayGames or the OutGames. However, in 2017 these events will not take place, because the OutGames are being held in Miami/USA – similarly to in 2014, when the GayGames were hosted in Cleveland/USA. In precisely the same fashion, the ESSDA decided to award the hosting of the European Championships as an independent event.
