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.

  • Tuesdays, 24 May – 14 June, 19h15-20h15
  • Muizenberg Methodist Church, 5 Marchmont Rd

What to bring:

  • Comfy shoes that you can dance in (sneakers and formal shoes are great, low vintage style heels are fine too)
  • A water bottle
