Sunday Afternoons

Next dates to be released.

Location: The Longwood Ballroom

This six week series class is your chance to dig deep into the complexities that make Balboa such a fun yet challenging swing dance! This class will start out with a quick review of basic foundational moves like the Come Around, Transition Step (hitch), and the Toss Out. We will then progress into more complex combos using those moves. The instruction will focus on the details of Balboa connection and techniques such as turns and footwork. The class will also take a more in depth look at Balboa style and will teach several moves to illustrate this. Each class will build upon information from the previous class to continuously further your knowledge week by week. Classes will be an hour long followed by a half hour of practice, questions, and individual help.

This class is open to dancers who already know the basics of Balboa. While there will be a brief review, it is recommended that you know the Come Around and the Toss Out as well. Individuals and couples welcome. Class highlights:

  • Step by step, week by week instruction to make learning easy
  • One hour of instruction per class plus a half hour of help/question time
  • Concentration on dance dynamics
  • Learn moves that add more style and strengthen lead/follow
  • Class goal is to get you smooth, stylish, and faster with Balboa!

Price & Registration: Advanced and online registration is now closed. There is still space in the class and you can register at the door at the day-of price ($70).

Quotes and Comments

“I wanted to send a little note expressing my appreciation for the amazing job you did teaching me how to dance. I went to all the events for ORLX this past weekend and had some wonderful compliments about my dancing. The biggest one, that topped them all was when a lead said to me, "...your style of dancing is so authentic. It is how the old timers would say they used to dance." Thank you, thank you, thank you...for keeping true to the origin of the dance and passing that on to your students without corruption. It made me extra proud to say who my instructors were. Another lead I danced with was from JAX and attended your workshop there and after I told him who I learned from he said, "oh, yes of course! you are so lucky to have them in Orlando." I just beamed and agreed. What more can one say...keep up the good work seems trite, but it is heartfelt!”
