The Place

Borovets is a town on the northern slopes of Bulgaria’s Rila Mountains, at an altitude of 1350m. It is the first mountain resort on the entire Balkans. It’s the gateway to numerous ski and snowboard runs on Rila National Park’s craggy Musala Ridge. Cycle routes crisscross the alpine landscape. Footpaths lead through rocky outcrops and valleys to the 7 high-altitude Musala Lakes, including glacial Icy Lake. Just north, kayaks and other leisure boats ply the Iskar Reservoir’s calm waters.

Getting There

Bulgaria is a member of the EU and it is easily accessible from most parts of Europe. If you are coming from outside the EU, you might need a visa in order to enter the country. We advice you to check beforehand.

Traveling options are various – by plane, bus, train or car.

Note that you can also search for some additional flights through Skopje, North Macedonia (non-EU) or Thessaloniki, Greece (EU).
If you travel to Varna, Burgas, Skopje or Thessaloniki – make your way from there to Sofia and further organize the rest of the trip to Borovets by following the tips below.

From Sofia by car

Head to Tsarigradsko Shose towards Gorublyane district. Take the exit and turn right to Samokovsko Shose. Head to Pancherevo , and follow the road E82 to Borovets. Or simply put “Borovets” in your maps/navigation and follow. 🙂


In case you are old-school and use physical maps you should follow these directions: Sofia – Gorublyane – Pancharevo – Samokov  – Borovets.


Note: If you are coming by car – have in mind that you need a vignette sticker to drive in Bulgaria. It can be purchased from any gas station or online via the link blow. There will be available free parking spots at the camp location.



The Bulgarian Lev is the currency of Bulgaria. The currency code for Lev is BGN, and the currency symbol is лв.
Тhe value of the leva has been pegged to the Euro, at a fixed rate of 1 EUR = 1.96 BGN. Prices in shops and restaurants should be divided by two in order to get them in Euro. 

Everywhere you will pay in Lev, so change some money in the center of the city or use an ATM directly.


Sondre and Tanya (NOR/UKR)

They’ve started their partnership at Swing Aout Festival 2015 (Laroquebrou, France) and right after got invited to teach in Canada. Since then it rolled like a snowball with more and more invitations to teach and perform Boogie Woogie and Lindy-hop in different events around Europe. Apart from that they got involved into the international Boogie Woogie competition scene representing Norway. During 2016-2018 Sondre and Tanya have entered all finals in each competition. Their fast development made them win four World Cups, Nordic Championship and, most important, World Championship 2017 (Marseille, France). Currently they are number 2 in the World overall Main class Boogie Woogie ranking list. Their plan is to keep on competing, performing, teaching and sharing the dances we all love in any possible way!

  • World Champions 2017
  • Vice World Champions 2018
  • European Champions 2018, 2019
  • Nordic Champions 2017, 2018
  • Norwegian Champions 2017, 2018
  • 9 World Cup wins all over the world including USA and Russia.

Before starting this partnership each of them had already a rich dance background…

Grzegorz & Agnieszka Cherubiński

Agnieszka and Grzegorz are Boogie Woogie dancing siblings, who started to dance with each other in the beginning of 2009. Their first international success was in 2009 in Maribor, where they got the 5th place in the World Cup. But their career boomed in the April of 2011 when they started to break the scandinavian “monopoly” of final couples. They also managed to get the 3rd place in World Championship in Stuttgart 2011. They decided to end their career in 2016 reaching highest results in their lives, becoming European Champions and Vice World Champions.

Agnieszka and Grzegorz are giving their own style and new look to Boogie Woogie. Their dance is a combination of many different techniques with an extra touch of Polish style, which gives them a unique feeling. It is also said that they are not only good dancers but also excellent teachers. 

Vlady “Bombeto” & Beny (BGR)


Vlady is a one of the first boogie dancers in Bulgaria. Initially, he started with ballroom dances at the age of 7, but found his passion in Boogie Woogie. Shortly  after, he made his own club and started spreading boogie in his country, gradually making it part of bulgarian life. Flying Steps Swing Dances organised 2 World cups in Bulgaria. Thanks to Vlady, now we have a strong community of high level boogie dancers.  He started competing in 2012 and until now, he is part of the only Bulgarian couple who went to a World Championship, and were invited to the World Sports Games. In the years to come, fate encountered Vlady with several short term partners. In 2015 he found Beny and they started dancing together.

Beny loves dancing and sports in general . In 2014 she first came across with Boogie Woogie. She instantly fell in love with the joyful and energetic dance. Only for one year she became one of the top dancers in Bulgaria, spending a lot of time in training and getting better. It wasn’t long before she started dancing and competing with Vlady. Good dance technique, soft frame and ”feeling” the partner are essential for Beny. She is the girl, who can follow everything! At parties you can see her constantly dancing and having fun with  everyone. 

Now Vlady and Beny are teaching together and putting their hearts into training high quality dance couples, growing the boogie community. They also started judging together and managed to adapt the WRRC rules for Bulgarian competitions. Some of their couples have already reached the top 3 places on several camps, and this is only the beginning! The everyday experience with their students so far allows them to predict and fix any problems. In class they are a genuinely amusing people, as well as accurate and detailed in their explanations. There main goal is to create good leaders and good followers, and teach them how to have fun on the dance floor.
