The winner takes a big beer keg and the honor to do the "Anstich".Competition Rules
Only work and no play makes us all dull boys and girls. That's why we have a lot of time reserved for parties and social dancing. Yeah!
We start early and stop only for the breakfast. Or if the floor is empty, so don't let that happen!
In addition to that, we have 2 themed parties:
It's Oktoberfest time in Munich. And we will bring the full spirit to you with a full-blown Bavarian style night. Expect some surprises including the "Sepp & Heidi" competition. Wear your local traditional garb/costume or get some Bavarian "Lederhosn" or "Dirndl".
After a weekend of 'round-the-clock dancing, you deserve to relax a little. We make this the "lazy weekend at home" version of dancing. Still the whole night dancing, though.
And as a highlight for Saturday Night
Saturday evening is the time to shine! With all the great finals and shows, we decided to make the night even more fancy. So bring your fancy dress and suit & tie. Black tie dress code until midnight. With a reception before the party.
