You take regular classes and social dance at least once a week. You know the basics, but want to keep working on them and also learn new fun combinations to improve your social dancing. Medium tempos are your favourite. You would like to be more musical and work on the connection too.

Recibes clases regulares y bailas social al menos una vez a la semana. Quieres seguir reforzando los básicos además de aprender nuevas combinaciones divertidas para enriquecer tu baile social. Tu fuerte son los tiempos medios. Te gustaría ser más musical y trabajar la conexión para entenderte todavía mejor con tus parejas de baile.


You are dancing for more than 2 years, taking regular classes and going to workshops. You know all the basics and also some variations. You would like to be better on fast tempos, learn more complicated shapes and rhythms.

Bailas desde hace al menos dos años de forma regular, dominas los básicos y también sabes meter variaciones. Te gustaría tener más soltura en los tiempos rápidos y dominar nuevos ritmos y figuras más complicadas. Has ido a varios festivales internacionales


Every tempo is comfortable for you, your dancing is full of rhythms and shapes and you know some fancy moves. You attend international workshops and are always at the advanced levels.

Ningún tempo te asusta, tu baile está lleno de recursos y no te lo piensas dos veces a la hora de competir. Sueles ir a festivales internacionales de forma regular y siempre estás en los niveles avanzados.


Balboa is what you do! You are a teacher in your scene and travel to take or to give classes, use to attend international workshops quite often and are on the Master / Invitational Level. You have read all the other levels and think they are not enough for you.

El balboa es tu día a día, eres profesor/a en tu escena y te mueves a menudo para dar o recibir clases, atiendes constantemente a festivales internacionales y compites en cada evento que tienes oportunidad. Crees que todos los otros niveles anteriores se te quedan cortos.

Andreas & Olga

Olga Marina is from Moscow and she has been teaching and competing all over Europe and is regarded as one of the best balboa followers in Europe. Andreas lives in Stockholm. He has been teaching, competing and performing Balboa, Lindy Hop, Charleston, Collegiate and St. Louis Shag internationally for more than a decade. Andreas is regarded as one of the top Balboa teachers and dancers of the world.

As instructors, Andreas and Olga emphasize partnership, musicality and follow-leading abilities. They have an easy-going, relaxed way of teaching. They are known for giving well-structured classes and they always try to give their students lots of individual feedback. Their ambition is to create playful classes filled with interesting footwork, figures, fun tasks and laughter.

Olga Marina es de Moscú y ha enseñado y competido en toda Europa. Es una de las mejores profesoras de Balboa en Europa. Andreas vive en Estocolmo. Ha enseñado y competido Balboa, Lindy Hop, Charleston, Collegiate y St. Louis Shag internacionalmente durante más de una década. Andreas es considerado uno de los mejores profesores y bailarines de Balboa del mundo.

Como instructores, Andreas y Olga enfatizan la asociación, la musicalidad y las habilidades para seguir. Tienen una forma de enseñar tranquila y relajada. Son conocidos por dar clases bien estructuradas y siempre tratan de darles a sus estudiantes una gran cantidad de comentarios individuales. Su ambición es crear clases lúdicas llenas de pasos interesantes, figuras, tareas divertidas y risas.

Adam & Sanna

Sanna Leinonen & Adam LaMontagne have been dancing and teaching swing together for more than ten years.

During this time, they have become well known for the joy and skill that they bring to the social dance floor. Mostly partial to lindy hop and balboa mix & match competitions, they have taken numerous titles individually at events such as The Snowball, European Swing Dance Championships, and Balboa Castle Camp, as well as placing in vrious events in Europe and the US.

In the classroom, Sanna & Adam emphasize a solid mix of technique and playfulness resulting in a dynamic and personalized approach to musicality and movement that is accessible to all dancers.

Mickey & Anna-Maria

Mickey began swing dancing in Los Angeles in ’99. A year later he was teaching local swing classes at NYU. Mickey has been teaching and competing internationally since 2005.

During this time, his innovation and showmanship, coupled with his love of dance history and theory, has led him to become internationally recognised as a teacher and a competitor in both Lindy Hop and Balboa.

His winnings include repeat victories at the most prestigious events, and he has taught extensively in the US, Canada, Europe, Korea, and Australia.

Anna-Maria has danced since her childhood ballet, and tried many other dance styles before becoming infected with the fun of swing dancing.

Since 2012 she has taught Balboa, Lindy Hop and Authentic Jazz, and in 2014 she started her own dance business “SwingDance Leipzig“ teaching with her husband and dance partner Ralf. She participates (very successfully!) in international competitions.

In her classes, she attaches great importance to the basics, technicality and provides inspiration for followers. It is no surprise then that after teaching her first international workshop at Studio Hop Summer Camp last year, she is now much in demand for teaching at other interntional Balboa weekends.

Blake & Jennifer

As a native SoCal dancer, Blake enjoys dancing Lindy, Bal, and Collegiate Shag. However, his values across all three dances stem from Balboa.

From the reverence of old timers, to the focus on connection, subtlety, and finesse, Balboa embodies his favourite aspects of dancing, and he brings those aspects into his social dancing, competition, and teaching.

Jenn Lee travels all over the world for Balboa. If there is great Balboa, you’ll find her there, dancing until the wee hours with the biggest, most contented smile on her face.

Fourteen years ago, a friend took her swing dancing, and she’s been devoted to that scene ever since, first as an student, then later as an avid competitor, organizer, advocate, and now as a popular instructor.

Her teaching style reflects her creativity, music background, collaborative approach, and partner communication.
