Stadtl Shuffle [štatl šafl]
PARTIES AND BANDS
You’ll enjoy three nights of parties – on Friday and Saturday with a live band, on Sunday with vinyl DJs.
As usual, the bands will be tailor made to our taste. We’ve commissioned two of our favourite bandleaders with the job! Michal Cálik (bandleader of the Dudes of Ellington) will be responsible for the band on Friday. We entrusted Janek Čarek (bandleader of Heart of Dixie) with the big night on Saturday. They will be accompanied on the stage by some of the best swinging jazzmen in the area – and we’ve also been promised such gems as a clarinet and a vibraphone combo.
Oh, what a pleasure shuffling to that music will be!
More information and venues to be announced soon.
We found that inspiration can be often found nearby. We thus decided to invite two couples of experienced local teachers, full of inspiration and passion for balboa.
Couple classes will be taught by
- MICHAELA VÁCHOVÁ and ŠTĚPÁN JORDÁNEK (Zig Zag)
- PAVLÍNA KORCOVÁ and MARTIN DANKO (Swing Wings).
Solo classes will be led by
Míša a Štěpán
Pavli a Maťo
CLASSES AND LEVELS
- You can choose from the offer of couple and solo classes. The schedule allows for any combination of those classes.
- Couple classes will be taught by Míša with Štěpán and Pavli with Martin. Participants will be divided into two parallel groups, both of which will enjoy 4×90 mins of classes divided into two days.
- Solo classes can be chosen as an accessory to a full pass or a party pass. There will be 1×90 mins with Štěpán (from the position of lead) and 1×90 mins with Pavli (from the position of follow). Both of the classes will be suitable for anyone regardless of their primary dancing role (see more info below). You can choose one or both of them. Each solo class will take place on a different day.
- All classes will take place in Studio Kafka, Koliště 43, Brno.
- Intermediate –you have some experience with balboa (2-3 waves of classes at least), but you feel that there’s still a long way ahead of you.
- Advanced – you’ve danced balboa for quite some time now, you’re comfortable with various tempos in both bal-swing and pure-bal.
Everyone will have to take part in auditions on Saturday so that we can divide the groups depending on the skillset of participants. Still, we kindly ask you to register with your actual level, so that we can ensure balance between the dance levels of leaders and followers in each group.
For solo classes, you can choose between two separate ones – one with Štěpán, another one with Pavli. Those classes are not a part of a full pass, you’re thus free to choose none, one or both of them.
Level of the solo classes is universal.
Each teacher will base the material on their primary role (Štěpán as a lead, Pavli as a follow). Despite that, both classes will be suitable for anyone regardless of their dancing role!
The basis on a specific role will only show in the basic footwork (leads start from the left, follows from the right) or the typical position in basic steps or figures. As we’ll be dancing alone, there is no need to know the techniques of the “opposite” role to enjoy both solo classes.
* For couple classes, we recommend registration with a partner. Those who will register alone will have to wait for a match with a participant of the opposite role. You may use our facebook group Hledám tanečního partnera/partnerku – SWING WINGS or facebook event to search for a partner.
** Cancellation policy: Unfortunately, we’re not able to refund your pass. If you’re unable to participate, please try offering your spot in the facebook event or local facebook groups. In the case of a change of participant, please let us know at email@example.com. You can check whether the seller actually owns their pass on the same adress.
