The Teachers

Gloria & Gio



Successfully trying to grow a Balboa scene in Barcelona area since 2005, Gloria has been dancing Balboa since 1998. Having developed her own training technique, she has been teaching internationally since 2010. Coming from various dancing backgrounds like afro-latin, traditional Spanish dances and solo jazz, she has won balboa International titles like Euro Bal Cup 2011, Balboa on the Promenade Classic Open 2013 and All Balboa Weekend PA 2014. Member and leader of White Chocolates solo jazz troupe, she has also been teaching locally Balboa and solo jazz since 2004. She is also a Dance Movement Therapist and uses various movement analysis techniques in her Balboa teaching methology.

Gio started dancing at the age of 10 and he never stopped. He travelled from the very beginning for Boogie Woogie competitions, later on he discovered Balboa which is now his great passion. He is currently based in Stockholm where he teaches regular classes and is part of the team organising Sweden Balboa Weekend. Gio enjoys experimenting with new moves and stretching the borders of the dance, many people remember him for his following skills. Gio still likes to compete, he won the first place title at All Balboa Weekend Amateur Strictly and Jack’n’Jill, Balboa on the Promenade Strictly and Jack’n’Jill and Snowball. His goal is to let the students develop their own style and character in the dance.

Montse & Alejandro



Montse and Alejandro have traveled around the most important festivals for years to perfect and create a distinctive style derived from energy and playful improvisation based on a great sense of musicality.
The cheerfulness they exude during social dances and the competitions they take part in make them unique. Their classes are dedicated to explaining the tools they have used to express themselves on the dance floor and create their own moves and variations.They have won and placed many times in international Balboa competitions around Europe and USA.
