This six week series class is your chance to get up to speed in Balboa! The Balboa is a classic swing era dance from Southern California that has enjoyed a tremendous revival in popularity in recent years, earning it a cult following of die hard dancers. It’s the perfect dance to both look and dance smooth from slow to even the fastest of tempos! With slick moves and fancy footwork, the dance is seriously addictive!
This class will start out with the basic footwork, connection, and fundamentals of the dance. It will then progress into turns, moves (come arounds and toss outs), and the basic styling points of Balboa. 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. Balboa is a fun dance with a connection and flow like nothing else! Fast, slow, or mid-tempo… this is a favorite amongst dancers!

Quotes and Comments
“After taking the beginning Lindy Hop class from Dawn and Rob, I was hooked! Not only are they great instructors who explain the steps in a clear way that you can understand, they are friendly people who make you feel at ease, especially when I didn't know what I was doing! They always took the time to give extra attention on steps I didn't understand, and kept at it until I got it.
I would highly recommend their class to anyone who is intrigued by swing dance, or ever sat by the dance floor at an event and wished they could participate. Get out there and give it a try, you won't be disappointed by Rob and Dawn!”
