At all times we want to make sure everyone feels at home and welcome and can entirely enjoy dancing. To contribute to this feeling we have safe space contacts and a code of conduct.

We also wish for many different people to attend: we of course think of all you dancers visiting from outside of Stuttgart whom we try to provide with hosting and local contact persons. And we also want to consider families and their needs.

This is where SBX participants are from at the moment:

  • Germany: Freiburg, Karlsruhe, Berlin, Heidelberg, Hamburg, München, Köln, Wuppertal, Frankfurt
  • France: Aix-en-Provence, Pau
  • Britain: London, Glasgow, Lewes
  • Switzerland: Zürich
  • Hungary: Budapest
  • Poland: Warsaw
  • Czech Republic: Brno, Prague
  • Sweden: Stockholm
  • Austria: Wien
  • Malaysia: Balakong
  • Denmark: Copenhagen
  • Italy: Naples

Safe spaces concept & code of conduct

At the event we will have designated safe spaces contact persons who will be introduced and who will have some sign of recognition. You can talk to them confidentially.

Family friendly

If you’re planning to make this a family trip with kids, write us an email at . We’d like to make this a family friendly event for you and help make that possible.

We also have quite a few Bal dancers who have – more or less recently – become parents and who are eager to connect with and welcome other dancing parents. That’s why we’re aiming to make this a family friendly exchange. If you are interested – let us know and we will try to team you up with a local host or ambassador who has kids of a similar age. They will be happy to share relevant parents’ knowledge with you whether it’s nappy brands, child-friendly sightseeing activities or renting/borrowing child equipment.

Who are we?

Three entirely different characters who connect through their love of Balboa.


Van, the polite American who is in charge of finances, logistics and tech can charm and energize anyone and make them a coffee.

Tom, the out-going and convivial guy from Cologne who is in charge of locations and bands has been living pretty much everywhere in Europe and can communicate in English, French, Spanish, Italian and erm, German.

Volunteer Organizing Support (Ehrenamtliche Unterstützung)

Mignon, the organized Swabian has been living in the region all her life and can tell you about its history, culture and quirks. She is in charge of anything related to texts and people (workshops, hosting, activities).
