Consolidation Balboa workshop for Improvers, Intermediates and above!

Click here to book!

Balboa is a partner dance originating from Southern California in the 1920s and ’30s, danced to the Swing and Jazz music popular at the time. A wonderfully fluid and sophisticated dance that allows elegance and style of those who dance it and has the ability to turn two dancers into one.   Being compact and efficient Balboa can be danced at a furiously fast pace and is an excellent tool to have in your dancing repertoire when the tempo goes high, but don’t worry we’ll be starting off at a more gentle pace in this workshop.

This workshop is aimed at dancers with some previous Balboa experience, anyone who’s dipped their toe in before but wants to get back or maybe you’ve been dancing it a while but simply want to improve your technique.  This is also an ideal time for those who’ve been attending our classes in May to put everything together.

The teachers are Becky and Will, they’ll be going through each move, tuning and tweaking and by the end of the day you’ll be able to shuffle all night on the dance floor.
