Covid-19 message: We can't wait to be able to meet up in person for classes and dancing, although we will of course continue to keep a watchful eye on developments.  more...

Our aim is to provide an environment that is as safe as reasonably possible for you, our teachers, and all concerned. To this end, we will run the event in accordance with both the prevailing legal regulations, as well as recommended government guidelines at the time.

Our expectation is that you will support this, including (but not limited to) the following, so please...

  • Do not attend if you have any Covid-19 symptoms, or if you have been in contact with anyone who has Covid-19, or have been contacted by the NHS Test and Trace (or other non-UK authority) and told to self-isolate
  • Book your vaccines when you are invited to do so, unless there are medical reasons why you are not able to do so
  • Take steps to ensure you are Covid free, for instance by taking a Covid test (also known as a lateral flow test or COVID-19 self-test) within 24 hours prior to travelling. If you do not already have access to these test at home kits, in the UK you can collect them for free from many local pharmacies or have a box delivered to you - please visit for further information

We look forward to...

Both streams will be taught by both sets of teachers

Intermediate and above:

You are likely to have done at least a term of regular classes, attended a full weekend of Slow Bal, or a combination of similar. You will be keen to progress further with this wonderful dance.

New and refresher fundamentals:

This stream is geared towards beginners, as well as those who might only have done a taster class or two in this style. It will also be suitable for those who would like to take things a little steadier, following our prolonged break from dancing, in order to recap and improve on the fundamentals of Slow Bal dancing.

Please contact us to be the first to hear when bookings will open for this event, as well as other Balboa dance weekends that we run.
