Learning Slow Balboa is an import part of mastering Balboa, yes even if it is much slower music, the connection and technique is the same, yet the tempo brings new challenges.
That’s why we have 2 Slow Balboa events for you here in February.
Our main event is Copenhagen Slow Balboa Festival in the very last weekend of February. Here you will quickly learn Slow Balboa from world-renowned dance teachers Anni & Gašper.
Don’t forgot that you also get 2 fabulous parties with live music!
Friday September 15th you can try Slow Balboa at Cafe Globen. We start with a free gratis introduction from 19-20, and then there is slow swing music from 20 so you can social dance and mingle with the other participants.
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!
