It is with much sadness that we need to inform you that ABW 2020 is canceled.
The health and safety of our attendees, instructors, musicians and staff are very important to us and given the current crisis it is very likely that it will remain unsafe for gatherings such as ABW for the foreseeable future.
We care about you and our swing dance community. We hope that everyone can remain healthy so that we will have the chance to dance together at ABW 2021.
We hope that you can help support the artists you love during this crisis by taking virtual lessons, purchasing video downloads and buying music. We will be providing links to CDs, downloads, merchandise, virtual private lessons, etc. on our All Balboa Weekend Facebook group.
If you have already registered, you will be receiving an email within the coming days with instructions for requesting refunds. While we have made payments for non-refundable items and business expenses, it is our intent to try to personally cover the shortfalls in order to help put money back into people’s hands that may need it now more than ever. If you would like to donate a portion of your refund to help cover these expenses, you will be able to do so when requesting your refund. We are all in this together.
