Anna-Maria joins Olivier: We are very sorry to inform you that due to corona-related short-term travel complications, Natasha unfortunately is unable to teach at the Augsburg Balboa Festival. But we are more than delighted to have a high-profile replacement and welcome Anna-Maria Bernhard instead and thank her for stepping in at such short notice to teach with Olivier at Augsburg. Anna-Maria will be able to translate to German as well, so learning will be easier for our German dancers this year.

Anna-Maria Bernhard started dancing as a child – ballet, figure skating, tap, … Since then, she is an enthusiastic dancer, open for all kinds of dances. As dance instructor, she has been teaching Balboa, Lindy Hop and Authentic Jazz now since 2012. As a well known successful competitor, she started teaching on international workshops in 2016 with Olivier Harouard, Mickey Fortanasce and Ralf Bernhard. She won her latest awards at the California Balboa Classics 2020: 2nd Place in the Mix&Match, 3rd Place Wildcard Finals. In her classes, she attaches great importance to the basics, technicality and provides inspiration for followers.

Anna-Maria and Olivier are looking forward to dance with you at Augsburg or online!

Access to Live-Stream

All classes of the Balboa Festival 2021 will be streamed live on zoom. You can use zoom either with your browser or with the app. We recommend using the app. If you are unfamiliar with zoom please make sure that you will be able to use zoom when the class starts. Also, please log into zoom well before class, so we can solve any technical issues in advance.

IMPORTANT: Please enter first AND last name when using zoom. This is the only way we can verify that you are permitted to enter that class. Participants we cannot identify by name will not be admitted to class.

We use the software Zoom. Zoom can be used in the browser (browser version) as well as downloaded and installed (installed version). Chrome has proven to be the best browser. Basically, however, Zoom should run in every browser. From experience, the browser version did not run as smoothly as the installed version for some participants.

To get to the live stream, copy the link below in your browser or enter the meeting ID after installing and starting Zoom on your computer and log in with your FIRST NAME and SURNAME so that we know who would like to dance with you.

The meeting ID or the link are:

Meeting ID: 949 585 8812


Please log in well in advance of the start of the course and provide your first and last name. If there is a lot of traffic, you may have to wait a bit for confirmation from the moderator.


You can decide for yourself whether you want your camera on or off. In order to give you feedback on your dance, the camera should of course be on :-)

When you turn on the camera: set the camera so that your feet can be seen well, if you don’t quite fit into the picture because you are too close to the Camera is because of the size of your room.

Also make sure that you turn on your room light so that it is bright enough for the trainers to see you.

Your sound is always muted so that the music can be heard easily and there are no feedback noises. However, if you have any questions from the trainer, you can activate them yourself if you are asked to do so. You can also use the chat function at any time to send a question to the trainer and / or other participants.

Before the first live stream participation, try out whether you have enough space and push a chair or something to the side if necessary.

If you have any questions, please contact us by email at [email protected]

We will post videos of all level 2-3 classes here a few days after the event. If you have booked a full pass you will find videos of level 3-4 on another page, accessible via the membership in your account.
