About The Workshops

Balboa I:

Balboa is a smooth and relaxed close-embrace dance that is perfect for crowded dance floors and quicker tempos. Since its invention by Southern California teenagers in the 1930’s, it has grown to world-wide popularity, providing a great complement to the more frantic and showy moves of lindy hop. In this class, you’ll learn the basic steps and several classic variations, while focusing on good technique and connection, so that you can comfortably balboa all night long. You do not need a partner to enroll.

Pre-Req: Swing II


Balboa II/III:

In this workshop, you will continue to expand on your repertoire of Balboa and Bal-Swing in this beginning/new intermediate level workshop. Please be familiar with the basic, come arounds, and toss outs so that we can add some really fun variations!

Pre-Requisites: Balboa I or instructor permission


Foxtrot for Swing Dancers:

Part of our Ready For SummerDance Series. Knowing how to Foxtrot brings sophistication and and elegance to your repertoire. Like Swing, it’s a timeless dance you’ll use at social events, weddings, parties, SummerDance and more.

Because you already have the foundation of rhythm and partnered movement, we’re calling the class “Foxtrot for Swing Dancers” as it will move at a pace that acknowledges what you already know.

Pre-reqs: Completed at least one Swing II


Shim Sham:

Never sit on the sidelines or fumble through the Shim Sham again. Come out and learn the sequence of jazz steps that make up this classic swingin’ line dance. All levels are welcome for this non-partnered class.

Pre-Req: None
