Beginner Weekend - Balboa

Traditionally a fairly fast close-to-your-partner dance with fancy footwork in limited space. The name Balboa refers to a dance tradition emanating from the Balboa peninsula outside of Los Angeles. The dance form has in recent years experienced a remarkable revival, both within the already established Lindy Hop scene as well as living an independent life in its own right.

Origin: southern California (U.S.) in the late 1920s and early 1930s.
Music: classic big band music of the swing era.
Synonyms: Bal, Bal-swing and Swing.
Film clipsVenice Beach (1938), Start Cheering (1939) and Maharaja (1943).

Beginner Weekend - Balboa Alternatives: 
The word itself is self-explanatory, and no previous dance experience at all is necessary. The classes, each 70 minutes long, will start from scratch and will pay attention also to newcomers equipped with two left feet. Check-in will take place on late Friday afternoon, and will be immediately followed by the first class; the remaining six classes will take place on Saturday and Sunday.

Available: July 5 - July 8
