California Balboa Classic 2020 Early-Bird Weekend Pass

Beat the rush and lock in your CalBal 2020 pass at the 2019 pre-purchase price of $225 (the average pass price paid in 2019 was $227!) These limited-quantity, early-bird passes are fully transferrable and may be used to pay for a full-weekend pass after CalBal 2020 registration opens in August, 2019.

Early bird pass sales end on Feb 6, 2019 or when passes are sold out.

Early-bird registration is closed. Regular registration open August 14, 2019. Stay up-to-date: follow us on Facebook and RSVP for 2020!

CalBal 2019 was completely sold out—in fact, we sold 872 passes, exceeding our “sell out” target by almost 100. CalBal will be back January 17–20, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency, Newport Beach with more incredible bands, DJs, classes, and competitions.

Between now and Feb 6, 2019, we will sell up to 250 early-bird pass vouchers.

Purchasing an “early-bird pass” entitles you to a single, one-time use voucher which may be transferred to anyone prior to December 31, 2020. Once the voucher is used to purchase a pass, all normal pass transfer rules apply (see below).

When you purchase this early-bird pass voucher you lock in a full-weekend pass for $225—your price cannot go up as long as you redeem your voucher before January 20, 2020. Your voucher code will be sent to you approximately one week prior to registration opening on August 14, 2019.

After January 20, 2020, vouchers are non-refundable and non-transferrable.

A full-weekend pass entitles you to 12 hours of classes, 30 hours of social dancing–including 7 hours to live music—as well as access to lunchtime talks, Friday electives, and our discount hotel room block.
