Balboa discovery workshopin Brussel

Balboa comes in different shapes and styles; this intensive introductory weekend will acquaint you with its basics, allowing you to immediately step in and explore how to add your own features. You’ll experience both pure bal, which keeps you in a closed position, and bal swing, where you break away into open movements. We’ll start with standard moves like single time basic, double time basic, crab walks, come-arounds, and lollies.

 

Beyond the moves, we’ll dive into the feeling and technique that define Balboa. What makes Balboa, Balboa? What does it share with other swing dances, and how is it unique? We’ll share plenty of practical tips and tricks along the way. Our approach and methods will provide a perfect refresher and give you the tools to improve communication with your partner. Join us for a fun and enriching dive into the world of Balboa!
