It's gonna happen, the next Roffa Balboa Weekend! It's gonna be snug, its gonna be inspiring and its gonna be magic! Teachers Miss Shani B. Mel Jo Live music by: Sunset Swing Lester's Blues Irene's Gypsy Swing Band . .. The registration dates for the Roffa Balboa Weekend are here! Registration date for Full Passes lottery start on Agust 25 at noon and will close September 11 at noon. Registeration date for Party Passes start at September 8 at 8 pm20 hrs. Registration lottery To take away everyones registration stress we will give you a week to register. The lottery will decide if you will have a spot. This concept has been used for several events and has been proven to be a fair game. The new workshop set-up will also give you more time to contemplate your track choices. Everyone that registers after the official registration week can be admitted to available spots as in first come, first served or will be waitlisted. Party Passes There will be no lottery, but first come, first served, limited spots only due to venue capacity. Registration with or without partner? Registration without partner is possible, ofcourse. But we will be confirming you based on the leadfollow balance. Want to ensure your place? Register with a partner! Beginners We will not offer absolute beginner classes. BUT we are contemplating a smaller track on Saturday for dancers that dance less than 1. 5 years. Questions about your registration can be sent to our special mailbox: roffaswing. reg ad gmail. com A new concept: Sessions More power to the participants! Instead of regular classes divided in usual levels we changed some things. Roffa Balboa Weekend values the concept of students taking reponsibility for their own learning. What does that mean? Forget a regular class where teachers tell you what to do. Instead we will have sessions where you will work on concepts with your fellow students under the guidance of the best mentors you could wish for. Tracks Roffa Balboa Weekend offers 4 theme tracks that are mixed level, but some tracks will be more suitable for dancers with less or more experience. When you register, you will be asked you for your track preference. You are also asked to specify a topic you would like to work on within that theme. Its okay if you dont have any exact ideas, but it would be a great start for you to prepare yourself for the sessions if you do. We will try to place you in the track of preference if there is space available and if the dance experience fits the overall level for that track. So it may happen that you will be place in track of your 2nd choice. The Bal Swing You learned some great moves, you know your lollies and can do your out ins blindfolded. But now you are ready to make them supersmooth! Your connection to your partner and the music will be key ingredients to become the master of flow.
