                    The geniality of the organizers and the exquisite selection of instructors and djs make the VSC one of the most enjoyable social dancing events in Europe. And could there be any better way to bring yourself into Christmas mood than enjoying mulled wine and dancing under the lights of the Christmas market in romantic Vienna?

                    I live in the states and I can only travel to Europe every so often. I'll never miss Vienna Salsa Congress. Its the best festival in the winter. Amazing dancers, great music, and cozy Christmas vibes.

                    I can't wait for the next edition! It's the perfect size - each floor is intimate, has its own feel, yet enough space to dance. There are plenty new dancers to meet while enjoying dancing with the ones you already know. The organisers are FUN (Bad Taste!).

                    I have been fortunate to attend many congresses across Europe. I must admit, this is one of the very best. Terrific dancing experience, memorable parties, great shows, awesome classes... The organization crew was on a very high level, both efficient and accommodating. Besides, Vienna is sublime that time of the year which allows you to make the most of your visit. See you next year for sure!
