Saturday, November 1st, there will be an intermediate Balboa workshop from 2:00pm to 5:00pm at Stafford Fitness Center (formerly Courthouse Athletic Club). Then, join us for an exciting evening dance at the ROC at First Baptist Church starting at 7:00pm!
Intermediate Balboa Workshop
2:00pm – 3:00pm – “Back to the Basics”
This class we will review the basic mechanics and broaden the theory/technique on the basic Balboa steps. (connection, frame, footwork, come-around, out-and-ins, etc)
3:00pm – 4:00pm – “The Baby with the Bathwater”
This class will be all about toss-outs. We will review and expand on the come-around, the toss-out, and the catch. We will also explore several different variations on the toss-out.
4:00pm – 5:00pm – “Up a creek…”
This class will cover everything you will need for wilderness survival…that’s right, we will be going over paddle kicks! Paddles are an extremely useful Balboa technique and integral to any growing Balboa dancer. They allow for improvising, resetting footwork…they are really the glue that holds the Balboa dance together.
