Classes at BAB will split by ability, based on how you rated yourself during registration.


Food & Drink

We’ll make sure there is plenty of water will be available during the workshops.


Straight after classes there’s a chance to sit down for a meal together. The venue will be closed during this time.



Safer Spaces

We would like to direct you to the BAB18 Code of Conduct & Safer Space Policy. In summary, be nice to people and don’t do anything that could harm yourself or others. If you are concerned or upset about anything, come and talk to one of the team. 



Brown Ale Blues is what it is because of the people that are there. It is a weekend that is designed to be exclusive to all levels of dancing. Please help us make everyone feel welcome, especially those who are new to blues dancing.
