Queer Dance Camp 2023 (English)

We are looking forward to the 8th Camp for Equality Dance Couples! It will take place again on the last weekend before Christmas, 15. – 17. 12. 2023. So we go back to the pre-Corona mode and thus to the traditional date!

Intensive training, lots of fun, new insights and then tired bones await you. The training camp is aimed at equality dance couples from Berlin, Germany and internationally, regardless of whether you are tournament couples (all classes) or amateur athletes. The training is usually held bilingual (German/English) or supplemented in the other language. Individual dancers usually find a partner.

In the period from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon, min. 10 training sessions of 1. 5 hours each for Standard and Latin by experienced equality trainers from pinkballroom and elsewhere: Pascal Herrbach, Guido Bouwman, Elena Zverevshikova, Margaryta Vyshetravska, Gergely Darabos, Christian Wenzel und Arseni Pavlov. More information about the trainers.

As always, we’ll have dinner on Friday evening and dance together at the ball on Saturday night.

This year’s theme: Our hands – from giving or taking, from forgetting or spraying.

Why is he camp so particular?

  • Dancers come together from different clubs and learn from and with each other.
  • Dancing together and the intensive exchange motivate “not yet” and “so long ago” dancers to compete on tournaments. Thereby we support the DVET-action „Einsteiger_innen gesucht!“ (first time dancers wanted!)
  • Role changes are part of some of the trainigs – some couples want to dance them regularly, others „only“ want to profit from the „new“ experiences. Thereby we support the DVET-action „Rettet den Führungswechsel!“ (save the role change!)
  • All trainings are appropriate for all participants – of whether your concentration is on Standard or Latin.
  • There will also be fun: Dancing at the Pink-X-mas-Ball
