Competitions

What’s new in 2018: The Switch & Match competition!

We believe in social dancing as the purpose of this camp. But as we know you like to compete we decided to make it all a little bit more entertaining. And challenging in a good way…

That means we will have two Balboa competitions – the very serious Strictly division and the wild Switch & Match one (see below).

Each competition will cost 15 € per person for entrance and 30 € per couple. If you sign up for both competitions it’s 25 € per person and 50 € per couple.

Strictly

This competition is a social Balboa dance competition open to all levels, where pre-registered couples will dance together without rotations and will be judged as couples. Couples will compete in a preliminary round where they will be divided into heats. The best couples of all heats will move into the finals. The competition is a Balboa competition and the competitors will be judged accordingly. The judges will be looking for timing, technique, teamwork, finesse, footwork and musicality. And socks.

Switch & Match

This competition is a social Balboa dance competition open to all levels – provided they are able to both lead and follow the basics. Dancers will be paired randomly and will all be judged separately as individuals in the prelims, but as couples in the finals: While these they will have to switch roles without interrupting the dance whenever the head of judges claps their hands. The judges will be looking for timing, partner work, humor, musicality and flow.
