Tuesdays in February at 8 pmBeginning Balboa

PRE-REQUISITES: none!

Balboa is a close-embrace swing dance that originated in the 1920s on the crowded dance floors of Southern California. In this 4 week series, you'll learn the fundamentals of this versatile dance... a must-have in your swing dance repertoire! We'll work on partner connection, lead/follow skills, basic footwork patterns, and the rhythmic pulse that will get you dancing to faster tempos.

No partner or previous dance experience required. Bring shoes that allow you to slide and spin on the floor (no sticky soles).
