CDC Festival 2022

Europes biggest Dance Festival celebrating Black cultures will finally take place again in Berlin from May 25th – 29th 2022!

Due to the pandemic we were not able to realise CDC Festival in 2020 and 2021 but we are back – bigger and stronger than before!

What CDC Festival includes:
Culture Dance Camp offers 19 workshops for beginners, advanced and professional dancers with the worlds most renowned teachers, including Dancehall, Afrobeats, Azonto, Afro fusion, Litefeet and Voguing.

Culture Dance Clash is a platform for dancers from various Black dance styles to showcase and compete with their art in a positive environment. Culture Dance Clash includes a Show Contest with two categories, Streetdance and Dancehall, and several battle categories: Afro Fusion, Hip Hop, Dancehall and the innovative, CDC Festival own Culture Concept.

As in the previous years, the Festival includes a Welcome Jam Session, a Conference with international speakers, and unforgettable Aftershow Partys with the hottest DJs (you know you cannot miss our legendary Boatride Party)!

For the first time in 2022 we will also have a Vernissage displaying Art from Africa and the Diaspora and the exclusive Dance Theatre Show “From Den Til Now” which will be premiering in Europe, to round off the outstanding program!
