We are looking forward to invite you to a unique event in the middle of the Tyrolean Alps. As a small community, we are happy to announce the second edition of our Shag ‘n’ Bal festival in Innsbruck, with international teachers, unique classes and of course, great surroundings.
Our passion for Collegiate Shag and Balboa guided us to create this festival in the beautiful city of Innsbruck. As “Alpine Jitterbugs Innsbruck” we organise it with love for our local scene and for all our friends out there.
Like all the other Festivals around the globe, we had to postpone ours to next year,
10-12 December 2021.
We had the idea to create a small Online-Edition for this year to connect with all of you again.
What is Collegiate Shag?

Depending on the number of people joining our Online-Edition, we ask you to choose your favorite class. You can register for more than
one class, but in case of reaching the class limit, we`d kindly
ask you to participate just in your favorite class. Thanks for your understanding.
We love good quality Merchandise!
That´s why we try to propose you the best quality we can find. We want to thank all the participants who bought a bottle or a T-Shirt last year and brought so our Festival around the globe. We don´t earn nearly anything on those gadgets, but we want to offer useful gadgets. Thanks for all the lovely feedback on our T-Shirts and bottles and sorry again that the T-Shirts were sold out that fast.
This year we created two different styles of T-Shirts and so we hope you like them both. It´s the same premium Bamboo (70%) -Bio Cotton (30%) fabric as last year, very soft, very fresh with a nature-friendly printing and fairly produced textiles.
We are really proud of our special isolated drinking bottles. You can perfectly keep your cold and hot drinks in there. But that´s not all, we can laser your name on them if you like!!! We think it is very important to use a drinking bottle made out of stainless steel to have a longlasting product for you drinking.
The bottles will be available in a new color,…BROWN RED! 😉
It is available in two sizes, 500 ml, and 750 ml.
There are still some ONYX BLACK bottles left from last year, so just let us know in the registration form if you would like one.
Our Cotton bags are really robust and longlasting. They will be a perfect partner for every festival and also in the summertime!
We have a little surprise for you!
We created a new merchandise gadget, it´s unique, and until now it seems that we are the first offering it.
A certified bio-cotton handkerchief for sweaty situations!
They are very limited, so make sure you grab yours now!
We work together with an Austrian producer named “Fazinettel”.
We want to offer you a mindblowing experience in the Tyrolean Alps! So take your time and dive in!
We try to be a “Green Event” and because of that we would ask you kindly to use public transport to reach us or to do carpooling.

So let us know on your registration form, if you like to go to the Sauna. If you are lucky and you get drawn, you will get one of the 70 discounts.
We would consider HALLENBAD AMRASER STRAßE because it has an incredibly nice (Panorama-)Sauna!!!
The entrance to the Sauna is 16,80 € and the discount we can offer to the 70 of you is 7,70 €.
