Collegiate Shag & Balboa

This track is ideal for dancers who are looking for a new challenge. We will start, in Shag as well as Balboa, at the very beginning; ensuring that you learn the right techniques and basics, as well as a proper feeling for the dance. It is the right choice for everyone who would like to learn one of the two dances for the first time, but also suitable for those who already know some basics yet are not secure enough in keeping the rhythm and the basic throughout a whole song with medium or faster tempi. The aim of this course(?) is to get comfortable with your basic technique and to get to know moves and fun variations to play with in the future. Innsbruck Shagsters: Choose this track if you have already participated in several taster classes (or not).

Collegiate Shag

You are not an absolute Collegiate Shag beginner and have taken at least two courses of regular Collegiate Shag classes and practiced a lot on your own. You know your basic by heart and are always and securely able to keep the rhythm and the basic throughout a whole song with medium or faster tempi. You are familiar with the basic moves (Tuck Turn, Send Out, Sugar Pushes, Change-Place, etc.) and you understand AND WORK ON the difference between leading – following it, versus going through the motion.

Innsbruck Shagsters: This is the place to be if you have successfully completed the Collegiate Shag Beginner Class.

Balboa

You are not an absolute Balboa beginner and have taken at least two courses of regular Balboa classes and practiced a lot on your own. You know your basic by heart and are always and securely able to keep the rhythm and the basic throughout a whole song with medium or faster tempi. You are familiar with the basic moves (up-hold vs. downhold, in- and outs, lollies, come around, throwouts, etc.) and you understand AND WORK ON the difference between leading – following it, versus going through the motion.

Innsbruck Balboaholics: This is the place to be if you have successfully completed the Balboa Beginner Class (during the semester as well as the Cozy-Balboa-Weekend).

Collegiate Shag

You have already been dancing Collegiate Shag for a while, in classes as well as on the social dance floor. You have reached a point where you can enjoy social dancing with ease to tempos such as 190 bpm and more, and without worrying about your footwork. You hit the breaks in songs, are able to lead and follow the difference between quicks and slows and you DO NOT need your partner for balance. You are familiar with concepts such as relaxed leading and following arms, stretch-compression-release in leading and following and are implementing it in your technique more and more. You understand that good dancing is not about moves, moves, moves, but about the quality of leading and following them!

Innsbruck Shagsters: This is the place to be if you have successfully completed the Collegiate Shag Improver 2 Class AND attended minimum one Collegiate Shag Weekend-Workshop!!!

Balboa
