BB-DanceCamp is a great chance to try some more "extraordinary" things. That's why we offer you several different topics that you can work on intensively for one day each. Special classes in Aerials and Jazz are open to all levels. In 2020, we do offer a special package for our Balboa and Shag dancers.
Just pick the class you want to join during registration:
Aerials, Baby Acrobatics - Saturday
So called Air Steps were already part of early Lindy Hop and Boogie and are the icing on the cake for very good dancers, especially in show acts. In this Special Class, you will learn some basic techniques and figures.
PLEASE NOTE: Aerials require a good and healthy physical constitution. In Social Dance, they should NOT be tried out, because this is too dangerous!
For safety reasons, you may only register to this class as a couple. The number of participants is limited to 25 couples.
Authentic Jazz - Sunday
There is nothing that connects the individual dancer with the music as much as Jazz does. While we often talk about Shorty George, SuzyQ or Charleston variations when we refer to jazz steps, there is much more to take from this dance – individualism and rhythm. We will work with you on some basic jazz steps and their use according to the music, so that you can integrate them into your dance creatively. Based on what you've learned, you will also be able to create your own open side-by-side figures.
NEW in 2020! Balboa Intermediate/Advanced - Sunday
Balboa is an elegant dance, ideal for fast tempo. In the Special Track Balboa for intermedate/advanced we will work on your connection in Pure Bal and Bal Swing in mainly basic figures. Then, we will widen your dance portfolio with leadable and individual varations. On the basis of a good connection with your partner, you will learn about new possibilities to interprete to the music. Upon registration for this class, please select special track "Jazz" and put a not in the comment field: "Balboa".
New in 2020! Collegiate Shag Intermediate/Advanced - Monday
This year is the first time we offer a Special Class on Shag for dancers from Intermediate/Advanced and up. Collegiate Shag is yet another energetic and dynamic Swing dance from the 1930-40ies that is danced to middle to fast music. Shag can be wild and crazy or smooth and playful. Therefore, we will work with you on different basics, breaks and moves, that will help you to improve your technique and to find or develop your own style. For Shag Newcomers, there will be a shag taster on Saturday.
