No. 8 Balboa in the City
No. 8 Balboa in the City is a weekend event with a difference: attendees are placed in small groups of 8-10 people and work their way through 6-8 workshops of personalised learning. Attendees work closely with local instructors and others in the group to explore a bunch of interesting themes and concepts, and dance a whole lotta Balboa.
Registration is now closed for 2017
Registrations will be capped to keep groups at 8-10 people per group. We will also limit registration to ensure an even lead/follow balance. If one role becomes oversubscribed, people will be put on a waitlist until more places become available as people register for the undersubscribed role.
Depending on interest, we may be able to include some ELEF groups (everybody leads, everybody follows).
The workshop format requires you to be able to comfortably dance some essential Balboa moves: both basics, out and ins, come around, throw outs, lollies, swivels. Apart from that, all levels are welcome!
If you're a total beginner and still interested in this weekend, get in touch so we can measure the level of interest and maybe work something out.
The registration fee is $150.
This includes a session with each of our instructors, practice time, and two ‘all-in’ workshops. It also includes the dances on Friday and Saturday night.
All workshops and events are at Full Swing Studios and the entrance is off Dixon St – up the red stairs.
Food & drink
Full Swing studios is in the middle of the Cuba Quarter, and there is an abundance of food options, from fast food to high-end dining.
We’re also surrounded by great coffee sources, as you’d expect for Wellington!
There are heaps of accommodation options around central Wellington, and we'd recommend you make use of social media to connect with locals.
