We’re excited to welcome international instructor Bobby White to Honolulu, July 28-29! A revered teacher, fun and generous social dancer, accomplished competitor, dance historian, and writer, Bobby wears many hats in the Balboa world, and does it all with style. Join us for a weekend Balboa workshop with Bobby, partnered by Honolulu’s own Deb Eason.
For the Bal-curious beginner and advanced dancer alike, this progressive class series will fine-tune your technique and challenge you with new moves and concepts. (No experience necessary for first session; subsequent classes will increase in difficulty.) Don’t miss this opportunity to take classes with one of Balboa’s best in a small, intimate class setting.
