Enviro-Sponsible !

Tiny Balboa is promoting environmental friendliness. tampon eco responsableRefundable cups will be available for a minimal sum throughout the duration of the workshop. (Don’t hesitate to bring yours back). Even though it is surrounded by mountains, Grenoble is a flat city! YES, with numerous bike lanes, and a network for easy bike-hire at unbeatable prices.  Don’t hesitate to rent a bike out at Metrovelo (check out the info on or take public transport (buses and trams réseau TAG). Note that the bus C6 connects the venues for the classes (École Giannone) and the parties (Rondeau).



Free hosting with local dancers: For every event that we organise through Grenoble Swing Association, we offer the possibility of being hosted locally at a dancer’s place. We are proud of the warm welcome Grenoble dancers have invariably offered to workshop participants over the years! This year again we hope we can host every single person who asks for it. Note however that dancers who take the workshop will have priority over those who come for the parties only. But, with a bit of luck, we will be able to find space for everybody. People from Isère, we need you to retain our number one rank as the dancing scene which hosts the most people. If you have a bed, a mattress on the floor, or even just a bit of space to roll out an inflatable one, that is enough! Don’t hesitate to tell us. To suggest or ask for hosting, fill in the registration from. If you’re interested in participating in this massive hosting operation, even though you don’t intend to do the workshop, please email us at
