$8/person/class General AdmissionBalboa class
$5/person/class Members
$5/person/class Students

1:00pm – 2:00pm – ”Back to the Basics”
Level: Beginner
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)

2:00pm – 3:00pm – ”The Baby with the Bathwater”
Level: Beginner/Intermediate
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.

3:00pm – 4:00pm – ”Up a creek…”
Level: Intermediate
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.
