Festival HaniBal

New world, new Balboa festival. We present you HaniBal. It’s time to dust your shoes and fall in love again with dancing beauty music and laughter. So pick yourself up and visit us in Ljubljana. We’ll be together for five days and four nights, dancing and having fun. Meet your old friends and make new ones while you explore the hidden charms of our beautiful city. Welcome.


Wonderful Lana Seldmayr and ever-exciting Andreas Olsson are joining us to teach all levels of Balboa. It is also our joy to present Katja Završnik and Nejc Zupan teaming up again for our HaniBal Balboa Festival in Ljubljana.
Our 3rd teaching couple from Spain Javier Izquierdo Montealegre and Lucia Galiana Talavera from Spani.


We have taken special care to pick historical one-of-a-kind venues for our evening parties. You will get to dance on beautiful dance floors all across the city, all within walking distance.
Don’t forget your dancing shoes and beautiful outfits.
