Popular in the 30s, this partner dance makes it easy to keep up with quick tempo swing and pre-swing jazz music. It’s characteristic look is a calm upper body with quick footwork.


Balboa Basics & Beyond - All Levels - Sylvia

Be at one with Balboa-NESS and let Sylvia be your guide. A fun class for beginners without Balboa experience but just as good for those who’d like to perfect their Bal with THE teacher who learned from the greats and who has spread this dance thorougout the US and across the continents.

Nuts & Bolts Charleston - All Levels - Alex & Samantha

This is a perfect introduction to Charleston, and a great way to tune-up your Charleston basics. Charleston is an integral part of Lindy Hop and makes dancing to fast music easy. This class will also help you gain more confidence, comfort and balance on the dance floor.
