Berlin Open 2022 (engl)

Following the cancellation of the Berlin Open in the last two Corona years, pinkballroom is finally hosting the 19th Berlin Open Championships for Equality Dancing in ballroom and latin american dances in 2022. We look forward to great dancers, to the fantastic audience, to the joyful faces on all sides. . . . For some it’s the preparation for the European Championships, for others it’s only a regional tournament event and for the well-informed it’s a particularly charming and loving tournament THE fixed date in the tournament calendar. We are eager to see whether dancers from all over Europe will find their way to Berlin again this year, in any case we expect a colourful starting field, which will delight the audience in its diversity and its dancing quality.

New Queer Tournaments – Dancing away from gender roles
At this year’s Berlin Open, we will host queer tournaments for the first time in addition to the women* and men* tournaments. It is aimed at all couples who are not allowed to dance at DTV tournaments, but also do not feel welcome in women* and men* tournaments, e. g. because

  • as non-binary persons they will not assign themselves any role,
  • a woman leads a man,
  • a pair with Inter*/Trans* people does not express a typical female*/male* pair,
  • they like the idea of queer tournaments,
  • or. . . or. . . or. . . or

Note: The women* and men* tournaments according to the tournament rules of the DVET are also open to all trans*, inter* and non-binary persons, but they must be assigned to either the women* or men* categories according to the rules. This assignment is omitted in the queer tournaments. We would like to invite all non-DTV couples, who have not felt very welcome in the DVET tournaments so far, to dance along. The tournaments are organized according to the tournament rules of the DVET.

We reserve the right to impose hygiene measures depending on the current Corona situation and cannot rule out the possibility that the ordinance of the state of Berlin prescribes such measures.
