Passes, levels & prices

Celine and Edgar will teach two Balboa levels (Intermediate and Advanced), one Collegiate Shag level (Intermediate-Advanced) and Slow Bal lessons for everyone interested. In addition, Balboa classes for beginners will be held by TSDS instructors Eliisa and Janek. You can combine dance styles so that you can participate in classes of either Balboa or Shag or Slow Balboa or all three styles together. The duration of one dance class is 60 min.

Level descriptions:

Balboa Level intermediate – You know Balboa basics, Pure-Bal and Bal-Swing. You know Down-hold and Up-hold basic steps (also known as single and double time), Out-Ins, Come-around, Toss-/Throw-out and Lolly Kicks and you can’t wait to explore more Balboa moves and techniques.

Balboa Level advanced – You dance Pure-Bal and Bal-Swing comfortably in the range of 175 to 225 bpm. You master Down-hold and Up-hold basic step (also known as single and double time), Out-Ins, Come-around, Reversed-Come-Around, Toss-/Throw-out (with variations), Lolly Kicks and Swivels. You feel comfortable to dance Balboa socially at parties.

Shag Level intermediate-advanced – You are already dancing Shag for a while now and find it easy to switch between a variety of different Double-Rhythm (6-Count) footwork stylings (e.g. Double Kick, Heel Toe and others). You dance comfortably up to 200 bpm or even more and have social danced Shag on many occasions. You can lead/follow extended Slows and Quicks according to music and know some complex moves. Now you want to take it to the next level and refine your technique and expand your repertoire.
