As a companion to our beginner-level Balboa Crash Course, we’re adding Balboa Intensives for the intermediate Balboa student and beyond (Lindy Hoppers who learned the shapes and then got stuck, this means you!). If you’ve got a few hours on a Saturday afternoon, we can help you refine your technique and put some new variations in your arsenal.
Take those basic figures and get them to the next level. Bal-ify yourself! It’s fun. And it feels great to rock some sweet Balboa when bands pull out their blazing fast numbers.
Each Balboa Intensive will focus on a particular figure or aspect of the dance. Watch this page for updates when the next Balboa Intensive is planned!
