Balboa Follow Up Workshop : Sunday March 9th
There will be a follow up workshop for those that attended the Balboa workshop in January. The follow up workshop is on Sunday March 9th from 2-4pm at the Chester Music Theatre. No need to bring a partner. In this class there will be a quick refresher of what was done in January, followed by progressing into new moves. Please note that only those that attended the January workshop can attend the follow up workshop in March (unless you already have some Balboa experience).
Balboa is a dance that originated in Los Angeles California during the 1920s and ’30s during the Big Band era, and is danced to the same music as Lindy Hop and Charleston. Balboa is a major part of the Lindy Hop world and comes in very handy when the dance floors get too crowded and/or the music too fast.
