Shag & Balboa Day

  • 2. June 2024
  • Collegiate Shag 2 Levels (also complete beginners)
  • Balboa 2 Levels
  • Teachers: Teis Volstrup & Teresa Fernandez
  • 1 workshop day

This day will be a very special release of a lot of passion and good energy for Collegiate Shag and Balboa. The partnership of Teresa and Teis has built up since they felt a perfect match in dancing while Teis was resident teaching in Munich where Teresa is based.

Both have an unavoidable big smile while dancing and their positive, playing attitude to swing dancing is their most important common ground.

Get ready for inspiring and fun classes with Teresa and Teis!








Teis (DK) & Teresa (ES/Munich) have shared their joy of Swing dancing since they met in 2022 in Munich, where they had the chance to teach together for several months in Vintage Club.

Soon it was clear that they had the same interest in live music and curiosity as jitterbugs and where live music was found in Munich those two would be the last to leave the dancefloor.

Teresa and Teis are truly energetic and made their first international statement together by placing 1st in the Endurance competition at Barcelona Shag Festival 2023 where they also placed 3rd in Strictly Shag and made it to the jitterbugs finals.

These two are pure jitterbugs and they are continuously searching for more ways to express themselves through dancing to swing music. Doesn’t matter the style whether it being Collegiate Shag, Lindy Hop, Balboa, Charleston, Blues or simply mixing in and out of all them through the same song. And with a 1st place in the Jitterbugs Cup at Jitterbugs Delight in Basel 2024 they got even more motivated to continue this exciting journey together.

Even if they have a broad interest in different styles, Collegiate Shag has been one of their main languages to express to the music. With rhythm, groove and partner connection as their focus points.
