What is your new year goal for dance? It is time to learn balboa! 

Taught by Hongbae & Amelie, this is a special 5-week course aimed at learning the basics of Balboa, another great dance of the swing dance family!

Balboa is optimised for dancing in the crowded ballroom, but you can also do fancy balswing variations in non-crowded dance floor! The 5 weeks course will introduce you core movement of purebal and balswing. Furthermore, there will be another 3 weeks of clinic session for those who want to nail down their balboa feet and learn beginner+ movement. Beginners’ balboa performance opportunity will be given to course participants in March with an additional training! Only limited spaces are available.
