Here’s to a growing Bal scene,
The Bal-Love Team
12 classes of different topics with Andreas & Mette, Mickey & Kelly, Mia (Solo) and Olga (solo).
Classes are for ALL LEVELS and you can buy them a la carte.
You can buy all classes until summer 2021.
In this class, we’ll work on footwork variations that you can use in your pure balboa. I’ll be showing the same variations from both the followers and leaders perspective so you can use your new footwork interchangeably no matter which role you choose!

There’s more than one basic!
The original balboa dancers had many different basics. Today we learn a pretty standard universal basic, but in this class we’re going to discuss other options including Dean Raftery’s basic, Mary Almos’s basic, and the basic that I use which is a bit of a mix! And we’ll play around with rhythms so perhaps you can invent your own!

Rhythms in Slow Balboa
Working on rhythmic awareness will improve your dancing no matter if you like it slow or fast. In Slow Balboa there is a lot of opportunities to get creative with rhythms. We will give you our favourite exercises and show you how you can develop your musicality.
