so much to everyone who attended and supported the Virtually All Slow Bal weekend and helped to create such a fabulous event… :-). more...
Well over 200 dancers booked, from over 30 countries, with every continent represented (except Antarctica). Amazing for a style that is still relatively new to many!
Our teachers were brilliant, so a huge thank you to Shani, Jacob, Kelly, Mickey, Olga, Andreas, Anni and Gasper. Superb classes from all, in spite of such difficult circumstances.
We look forward to seeing you at one of our events planned for next year, and sincerely hope that things will be considerably more settled at that time...
A whole weekend of Slow Bal in a fabulous sea front hotel right on the water's edge with stunning views over Torquay bay...
Intermediate and above: 6 lead/follow couples or single leaders, with a very short waiting list for followers.

Covid-19 message: With more positive news in recent weeks, 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. Having sadly had to cancel the Slow Bal event scheduled for May this year, we are thrilled that Mickey and Anna-Maria will now join Gasper and Anni to teach at our October All Slow Bal event.
We look forward to... World class Slow Bal tuition, comfy accommodation, great food, and everything under one roof, what's not to love!

Both streams will be taught by both sets of teachers
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.
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.
