Please follow the links in each of the sections below for information about the classes and fun sessions. We will update the information as it becomes available. 

Something for everyone, with "Fundamentals" classes, as well as classes geared towards Intermediate and above slow bal dancers.

Please register if you have not yet done so, and encourage your friends to register too. All money received will go to the teachers, and as more money is received we will fund more classes.

Fundamentals Classes

We are aiming to include two hours of fundamentals classes suitable for all levels.

If new to slow bal, or have done a few tasters/ad hoc classes this will be the perfect opportunity to learn from the world's very best. Having completed these classes there will be much you can learn from the intermediate and above section, taking these classes at your own pace or focusing on just specific parts of the class.

These classes will be invaluable to more experienced dancers too, as you will be able to hone your technique and understanding of Slow Bal.

At least four hours of classes with Jacob and Shani will be geared to Slow Bal dancers of intermediate and above level.

If you have less experience but have completed the Fundamentals classes please do check out these classes as you will be able to take your time focusing on specific aspects that you might be interested in.
