Get to know the details of this year’s unique edition:
Congress ‘Reggaeton vs Dancehall’ – the 10th Edition – is the largest dance educational event in Europe. It brings together enthusiasts of multiple dance styles, such as reggaeton, dancehall and twerk. Thanks to the cooperation with the ‘City of Dance Festival’ in Katowice, further panels in 2023 include Afro, Street, Fit, Woman and Latino. The tenth edition of the Congress ‘Reggaeton vs Dancehall’ will last 6 days and consist of three modules: workshops, parties and business.
The workshop module lasts from Tuesday (April 11th) to Sunday (April 16th). It consists of ten thematic panels (reggaeton, dancehall, twerk, masterclass, basic, afro, street, fit, woman, latino) and a number of dance workshops lead by international instructors.
The party part includes evening parties on Thursday and Friday, in the climates of reggaeton, dancehall, twerk, R&B and afro. During the Friday party, the RvD Contest with dance battles takes place. The competition is conducted in the category of soloists in the styles of reggaeton, dancehall and twerk, as well as in the category of showcase for dance formations and groups. The main party is on Saturday. At the main event, there is usually a great spontaneous style battle between the international artists and all the participants.
Business part – It’s an industry meeting combined with networking. Invited guests will discuss the most important aspects in our industry, ranging from agility to technology and marketing, addressing fundamental issues in the dance business such as administration, legal aspects, sound quality and contacts. Expect conversations on topics related to our industry and speakers with short presentations of best practices. After the meeting there will be time for networking and an after party.

NEWS is a chat on whatsapp where we post all updates about the organization of the Congress and we help you find the information you are looking for. The chat is directly with the creator of the Congress, i.e. GM Event Designer
Hello my name is Grzegorz (GM Event Designer) and I am the creator and producer of the Reggaeton vs Dancehall brand. My adventure with RvD has been going on for over 12 years. I started it when musical styles such as reggaeton dancehall were not yet popular in my country. During these 12 years of work, I have managed to organize over 600 events promoting both dance and music in RvD climates. In more than a decade, I have managed to promote many dancers from Poland and abroad, but the greatest satisfaction was that I could create the coolest community of enthusiasts of these dance styles. The atmosphere during the congress is very positive – both relaxing and motivating. The 10th edition will be a summary of these 12 years of work.I hope you guys have a great time at the congress and make a lot of new inspiring friends, who help you not only to become better dancers but also grow as human beings. I know what it’s like to break through and go into the unknown to a foreign country. I also realize that maybe not all the information you need is available on this page. Therefore, I am personally at your disposal via whatsapp and promise to answer all your questions and help you get to know the world of RvD b
