What is PISC?

The Paris International Congress is a dominantly mambo festival bringing together over 2500 dancers every year since 2016, organized by Mouaze and Yoshi. It aims at giving Paris an event of a scope and quality matching the grandeur of such a beautiful capital.

When is PISC ?

This year the PISC will take place from the 7th to the 13th of April. Yes, that is a whole week, with three preparties, three days of Congress and an afterparty! So many of our guests want to see the sights the city has to offer, yet can't get enough social dancing : it is our pleasure to offer them an opportunity to get together during their whole stay.

It will also be Easter weekend, meaning most of you won't need to take that extra day off work, but also that prices will be slightly higher than usual, so make sure to book your trip early!

Where is PISC?

PISC takes place at the Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile, 3 Place du Général Kœnig, 75017 Paris, France.

It takes the whole convention area floor, the biggest within a hotel in Paris. We decorate this space every year in accordance with the theme to ensure you get a new and unique experience each time.

Why PISC?

Paris is one of the cultural capitals of the world, and has one of the biggest and oldest salsa scenes in Europe. We do our best to bring you a Congress that lives up to this history, making sure every year that you enjoy a most unique experience. For that, we do not compromise on the prestige of our venue, the quality of our service, the level of our artists, or the amount of heart and effort we put into our work.

How can I perform at PISC?

Our main lineup for the Congress isn't open to applications, as we carefully select ourselves all our teachers and Congress days performers.

If you'd like to apply to perform at one of our preparties or take a chance to win your spot on our main stage through the Stargate, please write us at contact@pisc.fr

We offer all our rooms at the Hyatt as singles, but they are all outfitted with a big double bed by default. You can contact the hotel and change the room at any moment to a double by paying an extra 20€, which is the cost of the second breakfast. You can also choose between one double bed or two single beds at check in.

If you decide to book a room as a single but have several people staying in it, please notify the hotel, as it is an important information they need to have in case of emergency.
