Balboa Basics
This series is a great style of swing that's especially excellent for fast music.Open to all levels, this class focuses on footwork, connection and style. 4 week program!

"The original Balboa dance is a form of swing dance that started as early as 1915 and gained in popularity in the 1930s and 1940s. It is danced primarily in close embrace, and is led with a full body connection. The art of Balboa is in the subtle communication between the lead and follow, including weight shifts, which most viewers cannot see. As a result, Balboa is considered more of a "dancer's dance" than a "spectator's dance". It is also extremely adaptable, danced to a wide variety of tempos. REGISTER HERE
