Nitty Gritty Blues is designed to be a great learning environment.

The Revival Malmö
The Revival 11/11/2016 City: Malmö, Sweden Dances: Balboa, Shag The Revival is about bringing back a time when people went out social dancing and enjoyed the company of others with the same appreciation in music.

We invite everyone to come enjoy our ideas about music and dancing. The classes focus on the original Balboa, Bal-Swing, in addition to other Jazz era social dances. The evening parties all feature live music and offer close to twenty hours of social dancing time.

This year we will also have a 50% Shag / 50% Balboa track, with Jeremy & Laura and Peter & Katja as the Shag teachers. You need to have taken at least a shag beginners class to enter. This track offers half the classes in Shag and the other classes with the regular Balboa levels. So you will be dancing your normal Balboa level and meet with your Shag dancing friends when it is time to Shag.
Teachers: Mia Halloran (USA), Peter Winqvist Loggins (USA/Sweden), Laura Keat (USA), Jeremy Otth (USA), Katja Hrastar Završnik (Slovenia), Andy Reid (USA), Anni Skoglund (Sweden), Gašper Hrovat (Slovenia/Sweden)
