Boogie Woogie classes

Block classes


In the block classes you will work on new figures, hone your technique and, above all, have a lot of fun. Each couple of our top-class teachers will work on a specific topic. They will teach in each level of difficulty, but on different days, so that you have a class with all of them, and can enjoy a varied programme.

We offer three different levels: Intermediate, Intermediate-Advanced, and Advanced. Unfortunately, there are no classes for beginners at the BB-DanceCamp. Please read the level descriptions below carefully - they will help you to find the right class.

Block classes can be combined freely with any other class.


You have already attended several classes and you feel comfortable with boogie dancing. You know and can dance the basic figures* according to the teachings of the DRBV (German Rock'n'Roll and Boogie Woogie Association) – both 6 and 8 count. You can dance smoothly (up to about 152 bpm) in various combinations and with different partners, and have fun doing so.

* 6-count pass or changing places, shoulder setter or baskets, simple left and right turns (American Spin), JoJo, Lasso variations


You are addicted to Boogie! You don’t have to think about the basic steps (4, 6, 8 count) and the basic figures anymore. You know some more advanced figures* and step combinations**, and started experiment and develop on your musicality and music interpretations. Double and multiple spins are in your standard repertoire. Dancing with different partners is nothing special to you, and you don't leave the dance floor even at speeds around 184 bpm.

* E.g. Hegoes/ Shegoes, lasso, Einhänger bzw. Henkel, Basisreiter

* Kick ball change, crossed basic step (sailor steps), basic step with double kicks, basic rhythmic variations (delay, triple variations, etc.)


It got you completely. If you happen to hear Boogie music, your leg starts tapping. Training, parties and workshops are part of your life. The music determines your dance. Difficult figures, intricate steps and rhythm variations and improvisations belong to your repertoire. You start to develop your own dance style and bring it to action even with different dance partners. You know the differences and have the skills to dance slow and fast Boogie. Multiple spins and complex figures with different partners are easy for you even up to 208 bpm. You can understand and copy dance styles without explanations by just seeing them, and you might have already gained experience as a teacher, or as part of a show group.

Boogie Intensive - Advanced

The Boogie Intensive Advanced class is for advanced dancers who want to work intensively on their dance technique. It is not necessarily about a specific style (Boogie, Lindy, etc.), but about bodywork that you can then use to improve your dance in general. The class is also suitable for teachers who are looking for inspiration or ready-made lessons for their own advanced dancers. We recommend booking all three days for this track and focusing entirely on this class.

Boogie Intensive Advanced – Topics in 2024

All three topics are taught in each of the Boogie Intensive classes, but on different days.

Teachers: Bärbl and Marcus

Body Worx (Bärbl & Marcus)

This track will focus on deeper dance techniques to improve body awareness and control, like the 5 centers, self-organization and self-control, concentric and eccentric lead & follow. Bärbl & Marcus will enrich these techniques with their years of experience in Boogie Woogie, Lindy Hop and other dance styles. They will work on general concepts that are independent of style and dance and also on Lindy Hop/Boogie Woogie specifics.

Teachers: Zoriana and Thorbjørn

Secrets of proper weight shifts and changing dynamics (Zoriana & Thorbjørn)

Clean technique does not only refer to proper footwork to rhythm in beat but also to properly play with and place your weight. It is also very important, once you would like to work with changing momentum in your dance, which gives it a nice “spice”. Zoriana and Thorbjorn will prepare a bit of material for you that will help you understand and master advanced weight shifts and dynamics.

Teachers: Alice and William

Boogie out of the Box (Alice & William)

Alice and William continue to surprise the community with their variety of styles and creativity. In this track they will share a few secrets about where they take their ideas from and how they work that into their dance.
