Please scroll down to see the Outline Schedule for the next event. To whet your appetite the following are likely to be included….

  • Core workshops with your groups
  • Additional "elective" workshops focusing on particular aspects of Balboa
  • Fun taster sessions of something a little different but still swing dance related
  • An informative talk on a Balboa related topic, or an insightful "Audience with" session where you will be able to ask teachers questions about all things Balboa (or swing dance) related.

Previous tasters have included Cholly Atkins Jazz Moves, Roots of Swing, St Louis Shag, Carolina Shag, Musicality Exercises for Balboa dancers, and Tap for Balboa.

Elective classes for Competition Balboa, Fancy Moves by Hal Takier, Fun and Games (What If), Beach Dance Rhythms, and Dancing to Fast Tempo have challenged advanced dancers.

Other elective options have included Slow Balboa, Laminu, Fun Floor Craft, Playing with Tempo, Spins and Turns, Easy Musicality, Dynamics in Musicality, Balboa Sandwiches, Partnership Empowerment, Slides for BalSwing, and Fun transitions between Lindy and Bal.
