Feed your Bal addiction with a new round of Int/Adv classes! Classes can be taken as a drop-in or series package; practice later that evening open to all. Pre-req for all classes: you MUST be comfortable with basic Bal-Swing moves (e.g., crossovers, lollies, toss-outs).

Swively-Swavely Timey-Wimey Stuff (May 17, May 24) –- Play with timing variations in your swivels (part 1, May 17), pop-turns, and more (part 2, May 24). We’ll experiment with stretching time for more dynamic dancing, with either the lead or follow initiating.
Takin' it Slow (May 30, Jun 7) –- While it has a reputation for blazing tempos and fast feet, Balboa actually can be (and was!) danced to a wide variety of tempos. Class will focus on slowing things down and using all that extra time in the music. Learn some new moves plus good technique for all speeds.
