About the class:

Dance another style but want to try Balboa? Done some Balboa but want a refresher? We got u!

This 6 week series will explore the fundamentals of open-position Balboa, aka "Bal-Swing." We'll be exploring lollies, turns, toss-outs, out&ins and more!  

Didn't make it to last month's Balboa series? No worries: we'll structure this class so that you're not left out.

While no Balboa experience is required, this class is intended for students who are already at an intermediate level in other forms of partnered dance.

This class is a Rotating Partner class, and students will change partners throughout class.
