Learn to Dance in a Day: Slow Balboa

  • Corner Pocket Swing 36 Austin St Newstead (map)

Graceful, flowing, and sophisticated, Slow Bal is a beautiful, relaxed style of swing dance which is perfect for those lovely slow swing songs like Stardust, Moonglow, and Moonlight Serenade. It is characterized by a basic that is danced in close embrace and has a rhythm with triple steps like Lindy Hop. 

All are welcome. This workshop will start at absolute beginner level and gradually progress you through to more advanced movements. 

Teachers Rob & Emma have been dancing Slow Bal for many years and have learned from some of the best, including Dean Raftery who was one of the original Balboa old timers and is the main source of inspiration for modern day Slow Bal.

No partner required, we will be rotating partners in class.

Cost: $40. Tickets on website or at door
