Balboa Series

This series is for total beginners and also those who took the last Balboa course. Balboa is an amazing and fun social swing dance originating in Balboa, California in the 1930’s.

Balboa’s playful, conversational style is done in both open and closed positions. Because of this connection and style, it makes faster paced music more available to dancers and is easier to do for all ages of potential dancer. During the first 3 week’s well be learning fundamental rhythms and connections. During the last 2 weeks of the course well dive into turns and other ‘movements’ that will build on information taught in the first 2 weeks, but may be new to those who took the previous balboa class.

If you are curious about balboa, feel free to type in “all balboa weekend 2017” into youtube and enjoy videos of dancers from all over the world, including one of our very own: Emily Schuhmann.

To make classes affordable and to ensure a committed environment, the courses are tuition based. We rotate the topic and dance style based on instructor availability and community interest.

This Series is 5 weeks long and tuition is 60$
** Those who took Beginning Swing: Balboa previously can ‘drop in’ for the last two classes for $20.

All members of the community are welcome to join us during the social dance portion for $5. We are always looking for new DJ’s and volunteers to help make things more affordable for those wanting to participate. Dances include VINTAGE SWING dance music in a BPM range of 114-190.

8-9 pm Lesson at Highland Community Campus (Barret and E. Kentucky)

9-10 pm Social Dance (included in tuition or drop in for $5)
