Das neue UNiDANZA-Konzept

With UNiDANZA’s new core training concept, we want to revolutionize the way festivals are today!

No matter if workshops or parties: We want to raise the quality of every single festival component to a new level.

What does the UNiDANZA Core Training concept look like in detail?

The festival consists of the following programme items:

– Intensives
– Core Training
– Salsa Beginner-Bootcamp
– Parties


As in previous years, our Intensive classes offer you the opportunity to intensify your knowledge about different dances, elements or styling concepts in small groups of max 20 persons.

Each Intensive deals independently with a different theme from the Afro-Cuban dance world. You will find topics and requirements for participation in the respective descriptions.

The intensive classes take place on Friday afternoon.



The new core training concept will completely replace the previous workshop model of the festival.

But what exactly does CORE Training mean? Synonyms for core are: center, essence, origin, heart. Core training therefore means: More intensive, focused on two main topics training for maximum learning success in just one weekend.

The focus this year is Afro and Cuban Salsa. There will be only consecutive workshops on these two topics. The focal topics differ in the level of the participants' dance level and the corresponding lesson contents.

Participants of the Cuban Salsa Core-Training will announce their dance level themselves upon registration and start with a "Find your own level" warm-up at the beginning of the festival. All teachers of the Cuban Salsa Core Training are present and give the participants a RECOMMENDATION, which level is suitable for the respective dancer. The participant can decide freely whether he / she wants to follow the recommendation of the teacher or not.

For the participants of the Afro Audition Core training, the audition is obligatory at the beginning of the festival. In the audition, they are assigned by our instructors to a dance room - according to the dance level. The participants of the Afro Beginner Core Training are exempted from the audition.

A change between different rooms is no longer provided for in the new concept. The teachers will adhere to the given teaching level.

The new concept guarantees maximum learning success! The number of people per classroom is limited.

By this way, all participants get to know the world of Afro or Cuban Salsa in didactically structured lessons

The core training takes place all day on Saturday and Sunday.


Salsa Einsteiger-Bootcamp

You don't have any experiences in the Salsa Cubana (or you forgot everything you've onced learned)? Then the Salsa beginner bootcamp is the right choice!

In a 2 x 4-hour crash course on a weekend, our instructors teach all the essential basic steps and first dance elements of Cuban Salsa.

The beginner boot camp takes place on Saturday and Sunday from midday.


We know that the festival parties in recent years have not necessarily been our greatest strength. Now we want to change that for good!

That's why we move our parties to one of the most cult and suitable locations of the city! In the Gruenspan (known from our concerts in the last two years) we will turn the mood to the maximum. Finally we get the parties that are appropriate for our festival. We are really looking forward to it!

The parties on Friday and Saturday evening will take place in Gruenspan. For participants of the core training and the beginner boot camp both parties are included. For guests a limited contingent of tickets is available in advance and possibly at the box office.

The party on Sunday evening (in the sports studio, NOT in the Gruenspan!) is exclusively reserved for the participants of the festival (core training, intensive and beginner boot camp) and for people having a weekend partypass. There will be no box office at this evening.
