We will be offering 8 hours of classes from four of the top instructors in Balboa at Mobtown Ballroom and The Ideal Art Space in Hampden.
Included in the full pass price:
*4 hours of classes on Saturday
*4 hours of classes on Sunday
*Friday dance with live music

*If we do anything on Sunday evening
We will have not one but TWO amazing jazz bands over the weekend! Tongue in Cheek Jazz Band AND Hot Club of Baltimore will be playing on alternate nights!
Our DJs for the weekend will be Mimi and Jeff Liu-Leyco, prominent swing dancers from NYC!
Strictly Balboa — In classic strictly fashion, you enter this competition with a partner.
Balboa Mix & Match — Enter this partner solo and get randomly paired with a partner. We will rotate three times so that each contestant dances with three different partners in the pre-lims. Contestants will be randomly paired with a single partner for the finals. This competition is open to dancers of all levels, but you must do Balboa.
Spirit of Mobtown Balboa Edition — Formally known as the «Michael A. Seguin Semi-Annual Balboa Championships,» this competition is meant to uphold Mobtown's longstanding tradition of not taking anything too seriously. This competition will be free, open to anyone, and judged purely on showmanship. While you do need to do Balboa, you are free to dress up, add your own flare, and put on a show.
Judges and prizes coming soon.
