The application process is designed to ensure the best learning experience. We base our decisions on your level of dancing, but also on your ability to work together with other dancers. We are looking for dancers that are hungry to learn and want to be challenged. It doesn't matter if you are a single leader, follower or if you are applying together with your dance partner.
The group will be balanced when it comes to leads and follows and we hope that everybody works collaboratively.
Since we will work together during the week to improve our dancing, it is important that the dancers we select have different background and interests. Maybe you are relatively new to Balboa, but are an advanced dancer in other swing dances? Maybe you love to compete and perform or maybe you are more interested in social dancing. No matter what, you are all welcome to apply. If you get selected to attend, we will make sure that you have everything you need to make the most out of this week.
Week 1 and 2 will have the same frame work and focus. It is likely though, that one of the weeks will have a slightly higher average level since experience will be one of our grouping criteria. Which of the two weeks that will have the higher level, will be decided after the application process is completed, since we also want to accommodate dancers availability regarding the weeks. For this reason, you will be asked which week you prefer in the application.
The last day to apply for Bal-Love week 1 or 2 is the 28th of March and by the 18th of April, you will hear back from us.
