Do you want to try out the slidy-skating-silkiness of Balboa? This dance developed when lindyhop had to get small on the dancefloor, but the tightness, flow, and precision of this dance is a joy to experience.

*No previous experience necessary*

Jessie Litven will be guiding you through the basics of balboa from scratch, learning up-hold and down-hold basics, come-arounds, and other balboa foundations.

7:00pm lesson
8:30pm bal practice/social

Watch some pro bal for some awe:
  • I couldn't make the last class- could someone send me the video recap please?
  • Good news: My rehearsal was cancelled and I can now make tonight! Bad news: I am house sitting and only have winter boots with me. Anyone have size 7 dance-able shoes I could borrow?
  • Bal in Hal is happening, starting tonight! We didn't hit our target numbers, but a donor generously stepped in to fill the gap. See you at Happy Soul this evening!!!
  • Let's make this happen Y'all. Such a cheap deal to learn a new body language. For $30, and $20 if you are a student. :D
  • Last chance before beginner Balboa is cancelled! We only have 4 leads and 6 follows registered, and we need 16 people to run the class. Swing friends, reach out to all your swing people before it's too late to make this class series happen!
  • IMPORTANT: we need 16 people to run beginner Balboa, and so far we only have 8. Register right away so we can run the class series starting this Wednesday!!! http://www.dalswing.ca/register-bal-in-hal
