Latin Solo Dance Competition: Infos

​Idea

The Latin Solo Dance Competition is a competition for individual dancers who like to move to Latin music but do not have a dance partner.

 

The competition consists of 3 given choreographies that have to be danced in order to achieve an overall placement. It is also possible to register for only one dance. 

 

The special thing about the Latin Solo Dance Competition is that a dance partner is not required and that we provide the choreographies. It is therefore not necessary to have a choreography created or to make it up yourself.

 

The Latin Solo Dance Competition takes place within the framework of the "BERLIN OPEN Dance Championships". This three-day event has been held successfully since 2003. 

Target Group

All dancers with an interest in Latin American dancing are invited. Membership in the WCDF or a club is not required.

 

About us

We are a non-profit association (I.D.E.A. e.V.) which promotes dance and organises workshops and competitions in this context. Together with the Spanish dancers Joan Morro, Unai Pino Navarro, Marian Collado and Pep Morro we have developed the Latin Solo Dance Competition.
