we are all
It all started in a small Tango studio in Berlin with a bunch of passionate Bachater@s like us, which quickly transformed into an internationally acclaimed Bachata event series with exclusive workshops, parties, and our highlight Berlin Bachata Festival with more than 1000 participants per year.
Scroll down to walk through our timeline and see how we transformed the community with the love and passion of every single individual that supported us on each step.
the first one
only for bachata addicts
ADICTO was born out of the spontaneous idea of hosting a Bachata party in Berlin that provides the community with a safe space to dance with high-quality music and social dance. Our first edition hosted a local show team with Tanja and Coco and DJ DennisS on the playdeck.

After the success of the first edition, people couldn't wait for the next one! And there it was, with Janis & Zoe, who are now worldwide acclaimed Bachata dancers and Instagram superstars.
We also moved to an exclusive location by the Spree, right across Mercedes Benz Platz, with a fantastic view of Oberbaum Bridge: Bebop Dance School.
With this event, ADICTO was not only becoming a house of quality dance and education for Bachata in Berlin but also a space where people get the best service and location.
This was also the first time we introduced our unique concept: a day of intensive workshops with selected topics from guest artists, followed by a party with shows and a chance to meet and dance with the teaching stars.
