Level descriptions

Beginners-Intermediate level is for you if you have a little balboa experience. You have taken our beginners level or a beginners level elsewhere. Friendly and competent teachers will help you get a grip on not only the basic steps, figures and the music will be slightly faster.

Intermediate level – If you have taken balboa classes before and you know the basic steps and 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 Peer class is for dancers to whom most of the following applies: you have danced at our highest level (old level 3) before; you practice balboa outside of class; you dance balboa socially on a regular basis; you travel to international workshops; you are no stranger to solo balboa. To keep the skill level high, applicants will have to be approved before being accepted.

Slow Balboa is a slower version of Balboa. It is dance to music below 100 BPM, with slightly different footwork rhythm, but most of the figures and movement are identical. The Slow Balboa class is currently a mixed level where you’ll bee working on rhythm, figures and combinations which are apropriate for you.

October 26 Anni & Gašper. They will start with the fundamentals to give everyone the same foundation, and then build on that, gradually getting more complex figures based on participants. This class will have 1 or 2 short breaks given that it is from 19.22.
