Classes

You will sign up with your ticket along with your preferences for what classes you wish to take, as much as possible we will match your preferences with your individualised timetable, while aiming to match numbers of leaders and followers and keeping class sizes within our room requirements. We are running fundamentals classes on saturday morning, followed by themed classes for the rest of the weekend. The classes are not open to complete beginners and will not cover the basic steps. 

Saturday

Balboa (fundamentals)

You are comfortable dancing a whole song of Balboa, leading or following a few moves of pure Bal or Bal-swing, leading or following outs and ins, come arounds, and throw outs. You know both up and down hold. You wish to focus on your fundamentals and focus on improving the feel and connection of your dancing.

Collegiate Shag (fundamentals)

You are comfortable dancing a whole song of Collegiate Shag, leading or following breaks and shapes, moving between closed, open and side-by-side positions. You wish to focus on your fundamentals, get feedback on technique, broaden your repertoire of moves, and not have to think about the footwork while the speed of songs increases.

Balboa (A)

You are comfortable in pure Bal and Bal-swing as the tempo increases. You want to develop the moves you can lead or follow, add nuance to your throw outs, and challenge yourself to dance more musically. You may be playing with adding your own variations without influencing your partner.

Collegiate Shag (B)

You are comfortable swapping between a basic footwork variations while not impacting your partner, leading or following slow and fast breaks. You want to challenge yourself to lead or follow more complex or varied moves and focus on the technique to enable yourself to dance more musically.
