Welcome to Berlin

After the first edition in 2023, the Max-Schmeling-Arena in the heart of Germany's capital Berlin will see again 13 WDSF world ranking tournaments at the 2024 Berlin Dance Festival - an international dance sport festival of its own.

From April 12th to April 14th - two weeks after Easter - the more than two-decade long tradition of WDSF tournaments in Berlin will be continued. The range of world ranking tournaments - from Junior II to Senior IV (including International Open Standard and Latin) will take place at Max-Schmeling-Arena.

Some tournaments are held in halls A/B and hall C of the Max-Schmeling-Arena, but all athletes are under one roof. That makes this festival so special. Spectators can switch between the three halls very smoothly.

Furthermore the Berlin Dance Festival was awarded to host two WDSF continental championships. The 2024 WDSF European Championship Senior II Standard will take place on Saturday, 13th April. The 2024 edition of the WDSF European Championship Senior I Ten Dance will follow the next day - Sunday, 14th April.
