Core-Training

The core training concept is completely new and will replace the previous workshop model of the festival in total.

This year we offer two main topics (Afro and Cuban Salsa). In all 5 dance halls we will held workshops based on these two themes. The different dance halls / gyms in which we have the same main topic differ in the dance level of the participants and the corresponding teaching content.

All participants (with the exception of those who register in advance for the Afro Beginner Core training) will be assigned to a dance hall at the beginning of the festival by our instructors according to the dance level (“auditions”). A change between different rooms is no longer planned in the new concept.

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

This way, all participants – based on their individual knowledge – can develop their dance horizon of Afro and Cuban Salsa in didactically high-level classes.
In the Cuban Salsa core training we pay attention to a balanced leader/follower ratio.

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

Core-Training: AFRO

AFRO - Orishas, Makuta, Palo and more

10 hours of intensive lessons in not too big groups and really linked to your personal dance level. The lessons build on one another and are of high didactic quality. The special concept for everyone who really wants to learn something!

The participants of the Afro Core training are divided into 3 groups on Saturday morning at 10 a.m. by our instructors according to each participants dance level:

- Afro Beginner (no or only few Afro experience available)
- Level 2
- Level 3 (for Afro dancers at the highest level)

We are currently developing the exact workshop plan (Orishas, Makuta, Palo and more) with our trainers. Soon we will reveal more details!

Dates:

Saturday: Auditions at 10 am, workshops from 11 am to 1 pm and 3 pm to 6:30 pm, lunch break, snack and social dance (with DJ) from 1 pm to 3 pm.

Important notes:

Participants who specifically register for Afro Beginner do not have to go through the auditions on Saturday morning. Participants who expressly do not register for Afro Beginner can still be placed in the Afro Beginner Level by our instructors. The objective of the auditions is to make the learning experience as great as possible for each individual participant and to keep the learning effect as high as possible!

There is NO guarantee that our instructors will place you at your preferred level during the auditions. Please note this when booking your ticket! The decission which participant would learn in which level best is the sole responsibility of our instructors. A cancellation of the ticket is not possible in case of a "disappointing" audition.
