LESSONS AND LEVELS        

  •         All lessons will be in English
  •         We have three levels this year!

Intermediate –if you know all basic balboa moves (come around, toss-out, lollies, out-and-in etc.) and you feel comfortable in them, you like balboa so you go to socials sometimes and you are looking forward to continuing.

Adnvanced – you are an advanced balboa dancer who has been dancing for quite some time, sometimes has trainings and does not leave out bal-socials. Both fast and slow tempos are a piece of cake for you and you dance pure-bal as well as bal-swing; in short, you take to the dance floor like a duck to water.

 

Masters (Invitational) –you are a local teacher or you are going to start teaching soon. Balboa is in your blood and you do not miss any opportunity to go to a bal-social or bal-training. You like improvising, are not afraid of faster tempos, go to festivals, like competing or are preparing a performance. To make it short, you want to work on your moves and are not afraid of a challenge.

  •       Masters need to send a video of themselves dancing within 14 days of registration (long distance auditions), Advanced and Intermediate levels will be divided into groups based on auditions, which will take place on Saturday morning before the lessons.

Every level will have 6 hours of lessons (four 80-minute-lessons) and 2 tasters!
