Balboa Calendar

This calendar is no longer kept updated, but if you are missing a certain event (full weekend minimum), send me an email and I will add it.

The events written in blueish are dedicated Balboa events (but can provide short tasters in other dances). As a general rule of thumb, these Balboa events are the best places to learn and dance Balboa, and the bigger events are where the real Balboa fanatics usually go.

The events written in greenish are mixed camps where other dances are taught and danced as well, but where a full Balboa track is available. These camps often provide good Balboa teachers so the classes can be great, but the social dancing is usually not as good as in the dedicated Bal events (from a strict Balboa perspective, that is). This is a very good alternative if you for example are new to Balboa and don't feel comfortable with dancing only Balboa in the evenings.

At the events written in gray, some Balboa is taught, but they don't provide a full-time Balboa track. These events can be a good place to try Balboa for the first time, or to get a private lesson.
