For the first time ever, 5th edition of SHAG-A-BAL is in Zagreb!!!
24rth – 26th January 2019. Perfect date. New Year will be long gone from our memory and the spring is yet far to come. Long cold winter is still biting our bones. It’s the right time to warm up our feet with lot of sweat and fun (no blood and tears, we promise).
2 days of workshops, 2 levels, 3 nights of partying with live bands, tons of hours of new and old stuff to improve.
Altough we grew a bit, we still want to stay small festival with affordable prices and cosy home atmosphere.
THE BIGGEST SMALL FESTIVAL IN THIS PART OF EUROPE!
All tasters, workshops (for one track) and parties. All additional content is included in FULL PASS
Balboa and Shag track will collide for level of your choice so it is not possible to take both styles.
All parties on this festival.
This includes all activities on the parties – tasters, showcases and games.
There is also option to buy individual pass on the entrance:
You have knowledge of basic steps, basic rhythm and some figures. Probably you have attended a beginner’s course and/or workshop. With this, you are ready to participate in dance style you like (and have been familiar with).
On this level, teachers will pursue further development of your dance with more figures, steps and some interesting moves.
This level is easy going, and comfortable for all less experienced dancers.
This level is for all dancers ready for challenges. You have danced for a while (1 or 2 years) and have attended workshops and advanced classes. On this level, teachers will introduce not so easy elements like complicated moves, rhythm variations, tricks and other advanced elements.
This level is without mercy but still within bounds of comfortable learning and experience.
Please bear in mind that maybe your experience is something that you cannot always evaluate by yourself so be an honest dancer and ask your teacher or a dance fellow on which level you should participate. In that way, you will have an objective view and be able to participate in classes with minimum stress for yourself and your dance partners.

Parking in front is FREE.
