Level Descriptions

Collegiate Shag & Balboa -> Please Note: Collegiate Shag (Curious and Confident) is SOLD OUT!


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 totally 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.
