Sensual Weekend 2023
The Sensual Weekend 2023 ended Monday morning at 3 a.m. after a 15-hour dance marathon at the city harbour. A weekend with 6 dance events and 2x3 workshops. I would like to thank all participants for allowing us Rostockers to share so many beautiful moments with you.
It is very important to me to thank the many volunteers who, in the background, made this event possible without making themselves known. So now I'm listing it again:
Alex, Katrin, Nadja and Tobias - planning and organization in advance
Alex – Beachsocial, workshop organization
Katrin – dance teacher, dance courses and workshops
Ralf - drinks supply mole party
Steffen – music boxes for all events + music
Helena – transport of dance floors to WS
Meiko & Ludwig - Bachata Salsafloor DJ PWH
Suzi - fantastic videos and photos
and of course the dance teachers:
Lena & Arelio – music on the salsa floors
Daniel & Lorenz – music on the kizomba and bachata floors
and of course all of you who always lent a hand when it was necessary or played music.

Dance with us for a weekend at the Baltic Sea!!!
The schedule of the festival:
We are a free open-air dance festival (except for the 10€ ticket in advance for the planned indoor party on Saturday evening). We have 4 main locations and depending on the weather we will decide where to start the next item on the program.
Location 1: Warnemünde beach - only in "beach weather", no dance floor
Location 2: Warnemünde Mole or Promenaden – only in good weather, with a dance floor
Location 3: Stadthafen Rostock Aida Terrassen - partially covered and a little more sheltered from the wind, in colder, windy weather, with a dance floor
Location 4: Peter Weiß Haus Rostock – 3 indoor dance floors in bad weather, but currently only booked for Saturday afternoon and night.
Locations 1 and 2 are in Warnemünde and about 25 minutes by train from locations 3 and 4 in Rostock. In all locations we can open 3 dance floors with your help. We have several boxes and dance floors and each of you can also just put your box down and make music.
Ideally, our program could look like this:
from 5 p.m. get-to-know beach social Warnemünde on the beach
from 8 p.m. Mole Party Warnemünde on the pier, followed by a joint return trip to Rostock on the Sbahn with music
from 12 p.m. Dancer brunch on the beach in Warnemünde (simply bring your own food and brunch on the beach, dance, maybe sunbathe and swim)
9 p.m. – 2 a.m. Saturday evening party on 3 dance floors in the Peter Weiß Haus Rostock (admission 10 € in advance / 15 € at the box office)
11:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. Dancers' brunch in the city harbor of Rostock with subsequent social
from 7 p.m. farewell party in the city harbor of Rostock
Event #2: Friday from 8 p.m. we will make the pier in Warnemünde glow with 3 dance floors. We dance as long as we are tolerated or until midnight so that everyone can still get the last S-Bahn. Bring something warmer, because it can get chilly at night
Event #3: Saturday from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. we meet for a dancer's brunch followed by a beach social with several boxes to dance on the beach and sunbathe on the beach (dance floors as required). ….also dance-talk-eat-repeat….The workshops may then run parallel to this, maybe 200m away at the lighthouse.
3 Workshops: each WS 1h (you pay the price of 10€ per dancer and workshop directly to the dance teacher:
3-4 p.m. Kizomba with Daniel Schauenburg
4-5pm Bachata with Lorenz Bauer
5-6pm salsa with Lena and Arelio
Event #4: Saturday 9pm-2am we dance on 3 dance floors in the Peter-Weiß-Haus-Rostock. Admission included in the dance pass or single tickets are available at the box office for €15 or €10 in advance (please transfer €10 as a friend via Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name.
As a "special event" we have 3 extra workshops tomorrow (08/20/23) before you make your way back. Tomorrow everything will only take place in Rostock's city harbor so that you don't have to drive out to Warnemünde again.
12-1pm Salsa with Lena&Arelio
1-2pm Bachata with Lorenz
2-3pm Kizomba with Daniel
