We are teaching a two day workshop with two different tracks in October 2022.


The workshop will be at the beautiful St Columbia's by the Castle Church in Edinburgh (14 Johnston Terrace, Edinburgh, EH1 2PW) and our saturday nigth social will be at Upper Hall in the Pleasance courtyard  (60 Pleasance, Edinburgh EH8 9TJ)


Weekend Schedule:

(Friday- not included in our ticket price, but a lot of people will probably go to The Jazz and Jive Club from 8pm-11pm)



10am-5:30pm Classes

7pm-11:00pm Social Dance Party with 'Stompin at Summerhall'



1pm-5:30pm Classes



We want to facilitate switch dancing as much as we can, so if this appeals to you, please let us know what you would like from the weekend. We're considering a few options eg

  • A class specifically on switching
  • Allowing switches to attend a mix of both levels to suit their ability in each role
  • Having a rotating group of switch dancers in each class



Don't forget to use our concession discount code (STUDENT10 or UNWAGED10) if you are eligible, and check out our diversity scholarships for more information about accessing our classes.



If you've just started dancing Balboa this year, then the improvers track is probably right for you, and if you've been going for a while, then we'd recommend intermediates, where we'll be assuming you are very familiar with things like lollies, throwouts, and out and ins.


We don't yet know who is going to turn up to this weekend, and ideally we'd like equal class sizes to make sure you get a fair amount of individual attention. So, if you'd prefer, you can select 'choose my level for me' and we'll put you in the class where we think you'll learn and enjoy yourself the most, based on who else signs up.


Social Pass

Passes for just the Saturday Social ware available in our shop


Waiting List/Out of Stock

If too many of one role has signed up for a level, the shop will show it as out of stock, if you'd like to join the waiting list then just enter your email and you'll be notified as soon as it's available. We don't anticipate long waiting lists for either role, but we want to make sure we don't take your money until we can offer you enough people to dance with.
