Classes and levels
Level Inez: You have danced a little bit of balboa, but you are still getting your sea legs. Perhaps you have completed Level 1 with Ministry of Balboa or Happy Feet Studio, or you are a lindy hopper who have taken tasters and danced balboa socially.
We are preparing the last details for the upcoming Copenhagen Balboa Weekend – still having a few spots in classes for couples or leads left... hurry if you want to participate – or come join us at the parties and buy your ticket in the door.
This will surely be some unforgettable days and evenings!
Saturday night from 19.00 we will throw the main party at the House of the Serapion Order – with live music by Jeppe Zacho and four of his friends from Jack Street followed by DJ’ing by Gašper Hrovat who might indeed set the floor on fire!
There will also be slow-bal music played in the bar and lounge area to enjoy some relaxing moments.
On Sunday evening, persistent rumors suggest that there will be an open-to-all afterparty at a local speakeasy called Social Brew from around 17’isch.
In addition to the ever-important parties with live balboa music, CBW features two days of inspiring classes for experienced dancers with renowned international teachers Anna-Maria and Ralf Bernhard. Additionally, we offer a one-day workshop for slightly less experienced dancers. It will be taught by no other than the great Gašper Hrovat and local virtuoso Kasia Ceesay Hansen!
