Welcome. . . 

We have sadly had to cancel the residential All Slow Balboa weekend due to Covid-19.

The good news is that we will be running the "Virtually All Slow Bal Weekend" instead :-). Our teachers will run virtual classes over the weekend, which will also be accessible for 4 weeks after the weekend. There will be a few extras too, such as an interview session with Shani. Over 15 years, Shani has social danced and spent time honing her slow bal and pure bal skills with Dean Raftery, whose Slow Bal dancing forms the very roots of the dance we know and love today. More ideas are shaping up nicely :-).

Even better, all this will be made available directly to you for just £20

Jacob Wigger and Shani Brown (USA)


Friday 23rd October to Sunday 25th October 2020 and accessible to attendees for 4 weeks


Only £20


Now a Virtual Event

Unbelievable value and all your contribution will go to the teachers

We are keeping the cost low as we appreciate this is a difficult time for many. Our aim is to replace the income our teachers would have earned had BalBreak been able to run as normal.  As more people sign up we will be able to add more elements, so please sign up early (and invite friends to join too).

We hope to have at least 8 hours of virtual classes with these top international teachers, and more...

There will be something for all levels, so if you have not yet experienced Slow Bal, this will be an ideal opportunity to find out more and to learn from the very best at an unbelievably low price.

Shani and Jacob are back by popular demand, and we are thrilled that they will be teaching for us again. They have received direct feedback from Dean Raftery on their classes, so if you love Slow Bal this event is not to be missed! 

Please contact us if you would like to be added to our mailing list to hear about future All Slow Bal or other Balboa dance weekends that we run.
