You've danced Balbao before and you already have some more skills than level 1? Then come anyway and work on your technique in a small group
You dance Balboa regular on the dance floors, but have the feeling, that there is always something to learn...

In this class you'll learn or refresh your swivels-essentials. We will focus on technique, styling and keeping the rhythm. Our goal is to dance swivels comfortably.

Sunday: Block 3 12:30-14:30
How to make your swivels even more fun and feel effortless. You will learn how to make smooth transitions to other moves from your bal-swing vocabulary and add fancy turns.

Workshop-costs: 6hrs classes = 96€ (3blocks) / 4hrs classes = 64€ (2 blocks) / 2hrs classes = 32€ (1 block)
Balboa-Swing TeaDance: 7€
Jasmin ended up in a Lindy Hop class rather by chance. When she dared to go to her first social dance a short time later she was quickly hooked. Gripped by a passion for swing, she soon got to know and love Balboa as well.
What she particularly appreciates about swing dancing is the connection and the joy of the music. She would describe her dance philosophy as "active listening", which applies to the music as much as to the interaction between the dancers.
Christoph Schlueter: Hamburg
Christoph took his first triple steps in England in 2014 and soon got a taste for fast 1930s Big Band Swing and Balboa. Since moving to northern Germany in 2017, he rarely misses a swing party in Hamburg and can be found regularly at Balboa events in Germany and abroad. His focus is on a soft embracing connection as basis for a good communication between dancers. Creativity comes from experiencing the music together and interacting in the flow of the movement.
When teaching, Christoph emphasizes clean technique, musicality and attention to each other.
The event takes places in the "Restaurant Zum Achter". Adress here.
Just one hour after the Sunday Block 3, we will have our monthly Heidel-Bal TeaDance, with lots of
Balboa music, to give you space for practicing your new skills.
Guest dancers, who didn't particpate the workshop are very welcome to join as well. More Information and Motto here
