Beginner Balboa (Muizenberg)
This is a 4-week course that’ll introduce you to the basics of balboa* – by the end of the course, you should be able to social dance to fast, swinging big band jazz! The course is beginner-friendly, specially designed for those who have little-to-no dance experience, and for those who have danced other types of dances but want to try balboa.
* Balboa is a partnered dance that originated in California while the Lindy Hop was taking off on the East Coast. Danced to the same swinging music, Balboa developed a closer connection due to the crowded dance floors it filled. Less energetic than Lindy, and more footwork focused, Bal can be danced at high tempos with ease.
R90 pp/class. No need to bring a partner. Anyone can lead or follow, roles not gendered.
