or Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
answers for all questions (even the non-asked ones too…)
First of all our requests below are here listed for assure pleasure and joy for all participants, both for students and instructors. Having the experiences of several previous years’ salsa camps and numerous similar events, we tried to express those expectations, that could help everyone to avoid unpleasant affairs or any other troublesome occurrence.
Have a nice time, a lot of groove and joy in our salsa camp! Vamos a bailar!
# 1 wristbands
Everyone (instructor or student) must wear the wristbands – which meet all official hygienical requirements – during full time of the camp. We give two wristbands. One, which also has your room number on it, ensures that the hotel staff knows that you are member of the camp and that you are entitled to have your meals at the restaurant. The room key will be given only to that person, who has the relevant room number on her/his wristband. The other band indicates the level of dance skills and that you can take part in those lessons which meet your level of dancing. Not all our instructors do know personally every student, although we have tried to appoint our teachers accordingly. We ask you all to ease our work by wearing these wristbands.
If anyone’s wristband is damaged or broken, he/she must immediately notify an instructor about, so we can resolve its replacement. There is a limited number of available wristbands, so we ask EVERYBODY to take care as much as possible.
IMPORTANT: Entrance to the camp is possible only at the reception at Hotel Europa and Hungaria, whether you live in another accommodation, or just jump out for a quick snack or go for a walk, whenever pass the reception area, we ask you to show AUTOMATICALLY the camp wristband without warnings. Please do understand that this is for your own interest as we do not wish to allow any strangers to enter the camp.
# 2 accomodation
Hotel Europa and Hungaria – are the base (http://hcseurope.hu/en/)
Whichever hotel you are staying at, the wristband entitles you to use the services provided by Hotel Europa and Hungaria or the Salsa Diabolica Dance School in this area (classes, parties). Of course, if you stay in Hotel Lido, you can sunbath in Lido’s garden, but yo can use the pool, sunbeds at the area of Hotel Europa and Hungaria as well.
There is no possibility to change rooms or roommates according those requested in the application form.
# 3 meals
The meal times are given in the schedule! Hotel Europa and Hungaria are hotels owned by the same company therefore Hungaria and Europe hotels are considered as one hotel with two buildings and its restaurant can be found in Hotel Europa. Generally speaking, breakfast and dinner are served at the hotel you are staying at and lunch only in Europa
Lido has its own restaurant breakfast and dinner are provided there, whereby the lunch is at Europa. Wherever you stay, lunch always provided at Europa only.
There is not enough room in the restaurant for all of us to eat at the same time, therefore, the timetable has been structured to overlap between meals and dance times. Hopefully, there will be no disruption. If, however, there are some timesstill ques, we ask you to be patient and tolerant to each other and also to our hosts who are doing their best for our feeling good. There will be plenty food for Everybody
# 4 location of workshops
We plan to teach In 4 locations, for 7 (6 hungarian 1 english language) groups, so despite the large number of participants a proper size class can be taught.
800sqm conference hall: (high ceiling, linoleum tapestry) is located between Hotel Europa and Hungaria (it’s marked as “800m2” on the map) 175sqm event tent: (high ceilings, “bio-AIR-conditioning” – fresh air comes in when we open the side of the tent, wooden floor covered with linoleum) you will find it between the 800sqm conference hall and Hotel Europa ( is marked as “175m2” on the map)150 event hall: this is actually the restaurant of Hotel Hungaria, which is used as an event hall as well (air-conditioned, marked as “150m2” on the map) is in the Hungária building 100sqm hall: this is located in front of the reception of the Hungaria Hotel (next to the 200sqm room)
It can be said that there are no classes at Hotel Europe where we eat and sleep only and all classes held between the two hotels or at the Hotel Hungaria. The salsa party evening will be in the 800sqm conference hall with a view to lake Balaton (the SHOP will be there too), and the sensual party at the Laura bar on the ground floor of Hotel Europa which is between the reception and the restaurant
# 5 teaching levels
As we already have mentioned, wristband colors are to inform about students’ level, which certainly makes easier to participate in workshops.
Since the number of participants is somewhat higher than last year, we created different classes: 7 will be held in Hungarian and 1 in English. Subjectively one can participate ONLY in his/her own salsa class!
If one would like to attend to a lower level salsa class (comparing to his/her own workshop) is also possible, in case instructor gives permission!
Generally gender ration shall not be equal, so most probably there will be more possibilities for change.
Since the number of students and size of halls have a determining effect on classification, it is not always possible for students in couple to join another workshop .
In each case it is the instructor who has the right to decide about!
We kindly ask you to respect instructors’ decision!
This way we can avoid overcrowded and non-joyable workshops.
# 6 fakultative workshops
The facultative workshops will be in the 800sqm, 175sqm and 150sqm halls. Although these workshops are for all regardless level we shall indicate the suggested level of these facultative classes in each case. In addition, we try to make it possible for everyone to choose between the classes held at the same time according to their level or interest.
# 7 dress code
