✨ Vision
We envision a space where social partner dancers come together as social partner dancers first and then dancers of a style, to recognize that there is one language of social partner dancing and we chose whether or not to dance dialects of that language.
📍 Quick overview
– 3 party nights on 2 dance floors + a pre-party and after-party on November 23rd and 27th respectively, after-party in Vienna
– 4 days of workshops of international teachers of different dance style backgrounds
– music of different genres
🔹 Instructors
We are honored to be bringing together instructors from all different types of social partner dancing styles that align with our vision.
All of our amazing instructors have some sort of fusion/freestyle aspect to their dancing and will only teach technique, musicality, or connection-oriented classes at Dance Blender, no pattern/choreo based classes will happen.
These awesome instructors are:
🔹Gui Prada, for zouk also with tango, and Brazilian ballroom backgrounds (https://www.youtube.com/@guilhermeprada )
🔹 Alain and Flouer, for blues also with tango, zouk, and fusion backgrounds (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmmDZ9ovZjw )
🔹 Arnaldes and Bri, for bachata also with kizomba, and zouk backgrounds (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQdLCjnHGfg )
🔹Jenni Schmitz with a bellydancing, zouk, many partner/solo dances, improvisation, conscious dance/mindful movement, Transnational fusion background, and somatic/dance therapy background
(partner: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yevputGFgbE , Solo: https://youtu.be/uvkbXaCwWIk )
🔹Dotty for Salsa and Contact Improv also with a zouk background and the founder of ConSla (Salsa: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mB_XwsMM_rU , Zouk Contemporary:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8U4AEcoQJ-c )
🔹Yera and Leonilde, for Contemporary and contact Improv also with sala, and hip hop backgrounds (https://www.instagram.com/yerandleonilde/ )
🔹Jessica and Christopher, for fusion also with urban-kizz, zouk and tango backgrounds (https://www.facebook.com/DanceTheoryWorld/videos/164188343080159/ )
🔹Jesica Cutler, also with blues and zouk backgrounds (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmcQUkac4zo )
🔹 With more to come!

Each lesson at the festival is 90 minutes long, that way you and the instructors have plenty of time to dive deep into every topic, over 20 lessons! All the lessons will be on the themes of technique, musicality, or connection in social partner dancing and none of them will be pattern/choreo based. You will be shown and given the tools to create the dances you want between you and your dance partner(s).
🎵 Music
We have looked far and wide for the perfect DJs and musicians to be part of Dance Blender. All of them are versatile in what they play and are ready to have the music dance your socks off, for over 20 hours of parties across two rooms!
We will be having two rooms during the main party with changing themes every hour throughout the night. These themes are dance style agnostic and the majority of the music played will not be of a particular dance style, more details to come.

Our venue this year is the beautiful Campus Horn just outside Vienna in the picturesque Austrian town of Horn. We will have two amazing dance floors that are roughly 250m^2 each, one in the top floor sky bar and the other in the ground floor performance hall with drinks and catering provided through out the festival to enjoy as you relax in one of the many cozy lounge spaces found in the venue.
Did we mention that Campus Horn is also a hotel? Yes that is right, we have an all in one venue for this iteration of Dance Blender so no need to worry about local transport late at night or during the day to get to the festival.
