About the Workshop

Bal-Swing Crash Course

Level: Open*

*Students taking this class don't need to know any Balboa, but should have some general/basic partner dance experience. 

In this special 3 hour workshop, you'll learn about the fundamentals of open-position Balboa (aka Bal-Swing). In layman's terms, this is all the flashy/kicky/spinny bits! You'll learn (or brush up on) Out & Ins, Lollies, Toss-Outs and more. This class will focus on teaching fundamental moves but will still be beneficial for Intermediate dancers who have some Bal-Swing experience & want to improve the functionality of their dancing. (Advanced dancers may wish to register as their less-dominant role)

Since we'll be using Out & Ins as our "basic" in this class, you don't need to know any Balboa to join in! However, we do recommend that all students have at least some experience dancing with a partner prior to taking this class. (It will be a LOT to take in if you are truly brand new to partnered dancing).

Cost: Sliding Scale of $15 - $45 (choose your price at registration)
