Reviews 2013

Back to America and still smiling from the Vienna Salsa Congress. I guess dancers already said everything about it, how amazing it was, etc… The parties, the hotel pre-parties (oh yes…), the after-parties, the 7am breakfasts everyday.
Well, to me it was very special to come back to my dear Europe and surprise all the people that I am honored to consider as friends. Thanks also for the ones who surprised me Thank you so much for making this event what it was and sharing that positive love around. My dearest Magyars, Austrians, Slovaks, Romanians, Parisians of course (Paris #1!), and all the other ones. Thanks to the organizers, DJs, dancers (Thanks Jose, Miri and Greg for keeping it all secret!). Thanks for the great new people I met from Somalia to Kazakhstan via Luxembourg!
Last but not least, I am sorry America… I keep on telling you, but you REALLY NEED to step up your salsa game!!! Can’t beat a 7am after-party on Sunday

I don’t know what to say! Mainly because I am so damn frickin exhausted. Because somebody went and organised a superb first edition salsa congress in the beautiful city or Vienna! Then some guys ( DeeJay Stilo, Sezar, Humphrey Willemzorg andSuperMario) kept me dancing all night for three nights some much so I missed my early flight (slap!) The Sunday night was phenominal (video coming)!!!! Thank youMichael and your fun and jolly efficient team for organising this awesome gathering

Vienna, it was a blast!
All weekend went by sooo fast!
I can share with you the jist,
that if you weren´t there, you missed!

All started in Floridita,
Where you could meet Beige, Lolita!
Miriam and Fran Ziska too,
the most crazy girls, it´s true!

Next it was a RED-hot night,
`till 6AM`s morning light!
Dancing in the Christmas markt,
And now comes my favourite part:

Ice-skating and drinking punch,
Making memories with a bunch!
Dressing up for the big ball,
With the bestest gowns of all.

But let`s not forget the last,
bad taste party, was the best!
with the MC, singing live,
Sending out an awesome vibe.

Afterparty, Flo again!
So long, many lost their plane!
But who cares? It was our fate,
`Cause this Congress was SOOO Great!

It is really not easy to put into words how I felt this weekend! So much emotions!!! I’m so happy to have such a great event in Vienna and having the chance to be part of it!
Vienna Salsa Congress was just amazing! I’m so glad and proud of the whole organisation team… they did a superb job! A big THANKS toMichael Fx H to take the huge work and risk to realise his idea and the dream of us to have finally a congress in Vienna! Miriam, Christoph,Günther, Fran Ziska, Alex, Robert, Julia, all the volunteers and the whole organisation team! Congratulations!

There were so many special moments: the 7 am breakfasts at my place with Zsuzsanna, Kornél Tóth and Lolita Szabo…. the spanish-learning Xmas market tours with Korke and Judith… to see at the same time so many friends & students from Austria, Hungary and from all over the world… the fabulous music and crazy dance(r)s… the afterparty until 8 am in Floridita Vienna…. and more, and more, and more…. Beautiful experiences and an unforgettable first edition!
Christmas time was always special for me in Vienna, but now I just can’t wait until the weekend of 28.-30. 11. 2014!!!

I wish with this music to everybody who leaves, a nice, save trip back home, and those who need to work, a little moment to rest! Now… after lunch, back to sleep!

I have been to so many festivals & events & concerts & trips and done so much in my life, good decisions, bad decisions, you name it, but, nobody will ever understand what Salsa really does to our heart, and only those who experience it know what I mean. When you are on that dance floor, and I am talking about REAL dancers at heart, and those conga beats take control of you, that is the best trance in the whole wide world. Que Viva la Salsa y Viva Vienna! Love you all.

I would like to join for those who said a big thank for this fantastic weekend. Now I can confess that this was my first congress abroad when I participated as a guest DJ, not only as a dancer. I’d like to thank for DJ Greg as he thougt about me for this work and Michael Fx H who made this possible. I hope all of you in the Sensual Room had a great time with me. Thank You DJ-Muxima Slovakia, Deej Lindt. Great job. Many thanks for the Hungarian people and DJ Line up who came with me for this event.

Before getting to Vienna, a salsa event happened somewhere where an UBUNTU surfaced… I mean it should be remembered that the success is not by attaining financial targets or fame.. but by delivering the best patent that all parties (artists, instructors, performers, DJs and participants alike) are satisified indefinitely. Those parties must also be protected from organizers who gain the people’s trust but fails to deliver and/or have transparency issues (scammers). its people’s livelihood at stake… this is a gentle reminder for successful organizers as well as a business case study for those who wish to do a festival…

On a very brighter side, Vienna Salsa Congress is one of the very few congresses that i have witness where people were actually smiling throughout the weekend… either they were content… or the happy mood pills must have kicked in LOOOOL!!! The artist line up was a perfect start for the congress… God bless the DJs as they have delivered us tunes that are still hummed by some of the dancers as we speak… the venue was perfect for a dance event from the cuban room to the sensual room all the way up to the mambo room… managed to take workshops on the last day with Sean B & Grupo Alafia… Epic pre parties all the way during Saturday and Sunday along with the Big Brother Crew and Artis Hotel crew LOL!

In short, Vienna Salsa Congress was a success story with guaranteed future sequels… and i’ll do my best to show up again… big thanks to Michael & the rest of the organizing team.. great memorable times with all my dear friends (new and old)… and even had the most memorable dances with amazing salseras ;)) Wish i could tag everyone here….

Photos of the congress will be up in real soon… the first will the pre-parties… and it contains stunts thats bin trending since last year… FLAT FACE :)))

Vienna… this city is incredible and like Schwartznegger said… I’LL BE BACK :)))

has had an absolutely fantabulous weekend at the Vienna Salsa Congress – had some of the best most interesting, creative, musical, fun dances I’ve ever had in my life – special mention goes to Hitesh Salsawala, Srini Varadharajan Korkeyjudith España, Axe Dance All,Wesley Small, Benyahia Charaf, Shems Eddine Sanaa, Steven Abbiwn a couple of names i can’t remember (you know who you are as I had a massive smile on my face the whole way through :-D)

Many many thanks to the fab DJs: DJ Humphrey Willemzorg,SuperMario London and Shems for providing such great music-my throat is actually sore from singing my lil heart out! somehow need to recover my voice for my gig manana

A big shout also goes to the gelatto wombat crew for making the weekend exceedingly enjoyable and entertaining – Chip McClure, Shems, Hitesh, Steven, Maggie Brukało, Paula Jurvanen, Charaf andKarina Collymore:-) ba-na-na?

Zzz bedtime now – happy dancing dreams to follow

After all my happy moments at Vienna Salsa Congress 2013, showing that a first time event can be so perfectly organised and leaving everyone back with a smile on their faces, I feel very sorry that a lot of people had to experience the opposite in Madrid!
I am missing the words to describe how shocked i am how disrespectful an organiser can treat both artist and attendees! I’m disgusted!
If you guys wanna know what happened, just follow the event/group postings of various artists & attendees:
https://www.facebook.com/events/539605219393612/permalink/666935703327229/
https://www.facebook.com/events/148277382015168/?ref=br_tf

Me personally I wanna thank all organisators that do a great job bringing us well-organised and memorable events over and over again.
No matter if long established or new events, it is possible to do a good job and examples prove it.
We don’t ask for perfection, but we can ask for fulfilling what we were promised!

I will continue supporting & promoting those, that deserve it!

After all these great and honest comments about the Vienna Salsa Congress there is not much more to say but I still want to mention a few things.
Great job done by Michael Fx H, Julia, Franco, Iris, Miriam, Fran Ziska, Nina, Thomas and the rest of the team for putting together a line-up of professional, commited and humble artists for this amazing festival.
Also for giving us the opportunity to make a guided tour through beautiful Vienna.
I now can add VSC to my list of most favourite congresses. The preparty in our hotel on sunday was crazy and I realy enjoyed the act with Dj Sezar at the end of the party.
Thank you my fellow deejays for the great teamwork and the smooth switches.

Lots of love and a big hug for you all!

Wow – what a finale! Sunday night at VSC rocked! Music was irresistible, atmosphere electric and just when we thought it couldn’t get any better there came an afterparty! Well done to all involved!

Here we are. after a deserved rest I thought about what I would have missed if I attended Madrid “LOL” event and not this Amazing, Fabulous ViennaSalsascongress.
I would have missed wonderful dances, perfect dance-floor, greet DJs sets, a Beautiful city specially with Xmas lights, a chance to play in an international event, unforgettable preparties, funny moment with crazy and lovely people, as perfect organisation we can expect for a FIRST edition (If we don’t know it’s the first one we would never believe it)…

THANK YOU to Michael and his crew for organizing a such event beyond all expectations, my Roommates for the lovely moments we had, all the dancers and djs for keeping me on the dance-floor despite the pain in my feet, the preparties organizers for the craziness shared, the photographers for catching the wonderful souvenirs and all my friend for being part of this weekend.

Can’t wait till the next stop and really looking forward to the 2nd editon of VSC it will be a blast
Shems from Tunisia
****************************************************
After all the last weekend We heard sad news about another international salsa congress deceiving artists and their professionality,

full of love, passion and fun.
A perfect organization, in a beautiful venue and a beautiful town…
We saw everybody smiling and sharing passion for three crazy days and night.

You missed Vienna Salsacongress 2013 ?! Check it out yourself what you missed ! Little impression of crazy sunday party after SuperMario London took over the DJ booth to give us just the perfect music. Then followed by the DJ dreamteam DJSezar Duran and DJ Willy Humphrey Willemzorg, giving us a perfect set all dancers are dreaming of, which then ended up in the following events:
22:30..Finally home ! Left the Vienna apartment at 14:30, how can Manchester to Vienna be so difficult ? Aaargh! Anyway… as everyone else has already blogged the awesome’ness of this festival to death, there is not much for little ol’ me to add. If the first edition was this good I can’t wait to come back next year! Michael + VSC team you did Vienna proud! A special thanks to the Big Brother Crew for making the non salsa side of the weekend such a memorable one (even the crazy naggy one…. yes you know who you are ! :P)

The kick off edition of VSC was amazing, the venue – a top ballroom under the dome terrific, perfect sound, great connections, top ambiance and God knows what music…ahhhhh!!! Willy Humphrey Willemzorg &Sezar Duran: BIG LOVE, CARE & RESPECT for your entire work and for what you let me feel on the dance floor, congress after congress. And also. A big applause for my Huns, DeeJay Stilo & Gergely Kereszturi who’s vibes enchanted the VSC nights on the mambo floor! Supermario Salsa making the after-party hour a one to remember. And last but not least all my friends: thank you for reminding me that I should be amongst you even more often. :)) After a long “pause”, it was time to put my high heels on and dance, dance, dance and share awesome moments with you. I promise I will be around soon. And for Vienna: in a year, BE THERE! I WILL!

Okey….!!! I feel I have to input this…. (ViennaSalsascongress Vsc)
As am travelling to many festivals and work with different people and see various dedications and intentions as well….. I’m constantly careful of writing to many superlatives…… this very much because what you write down can and usually will be read and felt differently of what you want to tell…. some take it personally that you might indirectly hiding a message there…….. that you are supporting more others and not their…..
This as DJ’ing and being a part of the crew working for the Org. and their team, this is something I feel I can say we are many times aware of and some bust out and writes without thinking the choices of the words, some others remain more political silence and absent any comments…… my opinion is that people shouldn’t be any any any time judged or looked at because of expressing feelings some places and not on others…. with a duck face selfie or not…….. Facebook is Facebook…

So I break it down simple and easy…. straight from my

It was the first edition
My best lovely time as Dj ever (especially on that wicked Sunday party…)
Humphrey Willemzorg
Vienna I love you
I’m coming back next year…. Luckily Org. wants me back 2014 … (but if not I would be there again anyway next year….)
THE END!!!
Sezar from Norway
****************************************************
Wow, what a weekend!!VSC DEFINITELY ROCKED!!!!
For those that missed it – your fault!

By finishing the festival today in the morning in Floridita, all returned to where it started on thursday night with an already great preparty. Inbetween two days of great workshops, stunning performances, amazing parties in the unique ambiance of the technical university of Vienna, summitting in a damn crazy and wicked sunday party (best party EVER!) with still several hundred of people.
No party without music and no music without DJs: DJ Greg, DeeJay Stilo, Aurel Rusu Urri, DJ Supermario Salsa, DJ Jorge “El Agresivo”, Shems Eddine Sanaa you did an incredible job by playing continuously one great track after another by diving into all possible facets of crossbody music, and of course the black-curly-haired kings of the early monday-hours DJ Sezar Duran and DJ Willy – NL!!
The number of people attending a sunday party is in my opinion a good measure for the number of the craziest of the craziest people attending a congress who are often pillars of local salsa communities and very important for each festival and therefore it is also a measure of quality, because those people are not seldom f****** good dancers!!

Michael Fx H, you did an excellent job and you had/chose the right people behind you Julia Tomasekova, Miriam Weber, Fran Ziska, Christoph Hipf Hopf, Franco Sparfeld, Iris…
Alltogether you created an event in a unique location with a familiar atmosphere, the right number of people, etc etc.
All the effort and work for this years congress set the basement for successful editions of VSC in the following years!

Had a fab time at Vienna Congress great dj’s, had lots of fun dances with old and new. The last after party put a smile in my face (even now), a beautiful city and mulled wine everywhere! So glad I got to know the wombat peeps it was pleasure to be in your company. Highlight for me was getting stuck in my dress and a wombat crew member having to yank it off me lol! Good times, sore legs, happy face.

Hi friends,
already one week ago of Vienna Salsa Congress 2013 and was a big happy family reunion. Michael Fx H, his crew and the support behind the scene have made the first edition of VSC 2013 a successful congress. Congratulation Michael Fx H and is definitely worth for repeating.
The Venue-Tu Wien is the place to be in the heart of beautiful Vienna and easily accessible by public transport.
The DJ’s have played excellent music for all of us as hardcore salsa, bachata, kizomba etc. and kept us on the dance floor all night long.
The afterparty at Floridita with DJ Humphrey Willemzorg and Sezar Duran for the diehards was of the hook and kept us on the dance floor until 7.00 in the morning.
A few key points such as www.tuwien.ac.at, Christmas market on Karlsplatz, the beautiful city center of Vienna, nicely decorated with Christmas, www.floridita.at, and so on.
We all and social dancers made the first edition of VSC 2013 a great success.
Salsa it’s a magic word and unites the world and brings people together.
A big huge and thanks for the dance………………. Miriam Weber, Fran Ziska.
Make sure to be there at VSC 2014.
