Level Descriptions

Collegiate Shag and Balboa:​​​​​​​

The Curious level is suitable for those who have a solid knowledge of all the basics. Numerous rhythm and footwork variations, varying leading/following techniques and concepts, and moves are now waiting for you. Also, you will gradually get used to different tempos and improve your feeling for music.

Let the learning begin!


After many years of experience in this swing dance, numerous local or international workshops and festivals, you are always confident on the dancefloor at all tempos and with every dance partner. Here you can work intensively on details and techniques and get in touch with unusual combos.

Freak out!


You are confident in your dancing, and that’s all there is to say. 

You understand the concepts and underlying structure of the dance and see it as a form of communication. You compete in different swing dances, teach them actively in your home scene or internationally - or you would say about yourself, that dancing is the one thing in your life, that takes it ALL. 

At this level, you will play with the quality of your movements, enhance your improvisational skills, use different levels of musicality, and bring the finesse of your leading or following to a whole new level. 

Let`s explore together!

*To ensure a high level of this class, we ask for a formal application during the registration process (text and video). Thank you for your understanding.

St. Louis Shag

Simple Basics / Curious:

Do you want to learn the St. Louis Shag Basics, or have you already taken your first steps? 

This level will take both the Beginners and the slightly more experienced St. Louis Shagsters onto a new level. Let yourself be blown away by Rokas and Simona's positive energy and dive into the world of St. Louis Shag!


You definitely have experience in this dance and have enjoyed many classes in the past couple of years.

Then this level is the place to be. 

Even if you are quite experienced in St. Louis Shag you will be challenged in this class.

Freak out!

Shag 'n' Bal



You have a solid understanding of Collegiate Shag AND Balboa?

You dance both dances at social dances frequently and you dabble in mixing them in a single dance?

Come and join this level to spice up your fluency in both dances and explore ways to connect them together. Your Shag ‘n’ Bal Journey begins now!




You dance Collegiate Shag and Balboa for several years, travel to festivals frequently and you are completely in love with switching between them?

You consider yourself in one or both dances as an “Advanced” dancer? You have competed in one or both dance styles already? In that case, this is the place to be: your Shag ‘n’ Bal Heaven!
