5thBal-Ast Off! HuntsvilleBalboa Workshop
Bal-Ast Off! 8/5/2016 City: Huntsville, USA Dances: Balboa A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away....

It was a dark time for Balboa in the south. The Eastern Balboa Championships had just proclaimed they would not return to fight for the alliance.

But then, from a small space port known as Huntsville Alabama, a call went out to gather the remaining forces and prepare for Bal-Ast Off! into the fray.

And from far and wide dancers have come, answering the call and preparing for the launch that can save the south and her people and restore freedom to the galaxy....

Errr... umm... in other words we're a weekend Balboa workshop in Huntsville Alabama, home of NASA's Sapce Camp and Rocket City USA, dedicated to the preservation of the vintage swing dance known as Balboa.

We think that Balboa is just about the best thing since the Jetsons and our goal is to help spread our joy for the dance, to infinity, and beyond!

Festival Alan Swing 8/13/2016 City: Alan, France Dances: Lindy, Balboa, Solo Jazz, West Coast Notre-Dame de Lorette, built on a hill, towers over the surrounding undulating landscape.
The monument faces the very pretty village of ALAN and its Bishops’Palace at the crossroads of 3 departments of Haute-Garonne, Gers and Ariège, 70kms South of Toulouse (South-West of France).
The building came into existence in 1735, thanks to a bishop of 'Saint Bertrand de Comminges'. Directly on a 12th century old vault, it served as an hospital until 1920.
It was ignored until 1985, when Christophe FERRY, a man of passion and a carpenter, bought the complex and began the restoration of the former hospital which became today a place of cultural where visitors are welcomed.

It is in this unique place that you will dance during one week!

11thThe Revival MalmöBalboa, Shag Workshop
The Revival 11/11/2016 City: Malmö, Sweden Dances: Balboa, Shag The Revival is about bringing back a time when people went out social dancing and enjoyed the company of others with the same appreciation in music.

We invite everyone to come enjoy our ideas about music and dancing. The classes focus on the original Balboa, Bal-Swing, in addition to other Jazz era social dances. The evening parties all feature live music and offer close to twenty hours of social dancing time.

This year we will also have a 50% Shag / 50% Balboa track, with Jeremy & Laura and Peter & Katja as the Shag teachers. You need to have taken at least a shag beginners class to enter. This track offers half the classes in Shag and the other classes with the regular Balboa levels. So you will be dancing your normal Balboa level and meet with your Shag dancing friends when it is time to Shag.
Teachers: Mia Halloran (USA), Peter Winqvist Loggins (USA/Sweden), Laura Keat (USA), Jeremy Otth (USA), Katja Hrastar Završnik (Slovenia), Andy Reid (USA), Anni Skoglund (Sweden), Gašper Hrovat (Slovenia/Sweden)

*„In Native American cultures which tracked the calendar by the Moons, December’s Full Moon was known as the Full Cold Moon. It is fittingly associated with the month when winter cold fastens its grip and the nights become long and dark.

This Full Moon is also called the Long Nights Moon by some Native American tribes because it occurs near the winter solstice—the night with the least amount of daylight.”

**„Full moons are traditionally associated with temporal insomnia (inability to sleep), insanity (hence the terms lunacy and lunatic) and various "magical phenomena”(...)"
