Level descriptions

The beginner level is for you if you have no or little balboa experience. Friendly and competent teachers will help you get a grip on basic steps, figures and the music. Unless you have considerable swing dancing experience and learn quickly, we recommend that you take the beginner class at least three times.

If you have taken balboa classes before and you know the basic purebal steps and balswing figures well, the intermediate level is for you. On this level you will learn a broader range of figures and footwork combinations, and you will get to polish your technique.

The advanced level is for the strongest dancers in the scene. That likely means that you: dance comfortably to almost any tempo; you can quickly learn new variations or sequences; you practice balboa outside of class; you dance balboa socially on a regular basis; and you travel to international workshops.

Please note that there are no designated teachers in the advanced class (hence the lower price). Participants will structure the classes themselves and share material with each other.

Other information

If you want to attend more than one level, please make separate registrations for each level.

Since we need to ensure a balance between leaders and followers, it may take a few days before you hear from us.

If you are concerned about your registration, or if you have questions, you are always welcome to reach out to us via e-mail (dans@balboaswing.dk).
