Group Yellow

You are familiar with the basic balboa movements (uphold, downhold, come around, throw out, swivels) and you feel comfortable social dancing. In this group we will focus on developing your basics, and work on new fun material.

Group Red

You have been dancing for a year or more and take every opportunity to dance. 
In your dancing you are playing with different energy levels, footwork, variations and rhythms in your dance. Your Balboa has nice transitions from open to closed positions and is fluent in even little higher tempos (around BPM 200). You are eager to improve and keep your eyes open for dance events at home and abroad. In this group we will focus on more advanced variations, footwork and partnership.

Group Purple

You feel comfortable with the level descriptions above and are ready for a higher for a higher tempo in learning. You have been dancing for some years and attended workshops often. You master Balboa in a wide range of tempos, even the fastest tunes (BPM 225-ish).
You are working on your own style and movements as a dancer and also on improving your musicality by playing with music structures, accents and lyrics.

In this group we will work on abstract concepts and analyse your basic techniques in detail.

Opens the 15th of June.
