Please follow the links in each of the sections below for information about the classes and fun sessions. We will update the information as it becomes available. 

All classes will be suitable for single leaders and followers, and will be available for four weeks, so you will have plenty of time to re-visit classes to absorb what you have learned. 

Levels are for guidance, and all classes will have elements suitable for a range of abilities. If an experienced dancer you will be able to hone your skills and perfect your technique in the Fundamentals classes. If less experienced then have a go at the intermediate and above classes, as you will be able to take your time practicing any elements of particular interest.

Please register if you have not yet done so, and encourage your friends to register too. All money received will go to the teachers, and as more money is received we will fund more classes.


We look forward to welcoming you to Virtually BalBreak. The event will begin at 7pm (BST) on Friday 11th September. The various classes and activities will go live at schedule times throughout the weekend. Please see our Schedule page for further details.

Nick & Sylvia Classes

Four hours of classes with Nick and Sylvia will be geared to Balboa dancers of intermediate and above level.

In addition two hours will be "Fundamentals" classes suitable for improvers, or those with more limited experience. More experienced dancers will also find these useful as a refresher and for honing skills. 

Less experienced dancers can also have fun trying the intermediate classes, and picking out elements of interest. You will be able to take your time as you will be able to re-run each class as often as you like.
