Sunday Balboa Practice

What: A Balboa Practice!
When: Sundays evenings (see schedule below)
Where: Aloha Dancesport Center (350 Ward Ave, Studio 2 upstairs, Honolulu -- enter through back door on opposite side of building from Ward Ave!)

* Short practice to accommodate class series

Come practice your Balboa, review stuff from the workshop, exchange moves and ideas with your peers, or fix that trouble-spot. Or just come and dance. That's cool too. The structure is very informal and social dance conventions need not apply: if you want to work with the same person for 30 mins, you can; if you want to bring dance videos to reconstruct moves from, do it. We'll play Bal-friendly music at a variety of tempos (and we won't even kick you out if you Lindy Hop to it ;) ).

Everyone welcome... even if you've never danced a Balboa basic in your life! There will NOT be any formal instruction, but people will be on-hand to provide feedback or assistance if requested. For more information, contact Deb here or at 808-780-4641.
