3) LONDON BALBOA FESTIVAL - UPDATE

The London Balboa Festival is now sold out. However, you can still join our waiting list. There aren't too many people on the waiting list at the moment so there is still a chance of getting a place if you sign up soon.

We have also set up a Facebook page for the festival where people can link up with others attending the festival and post requests or offers for hosting, sharing lifts etc.

4) FORTHCOMING TEACHING SCHEDULE

We will be teaching at these forthcoming events:

TITCHFIELD LAMINU WORKSHOP
10th June 2012
Learn to Laminu. Laminu is a swing dance that's done to very slow tempo music. Some people describe it as slow Balboa but it's really more than just that. It has its own particular quality of movement and structure that lend it a style and feeling all of its own. The workshop will be followed by SugarPush, the Titchfield tea dance.

INTERMEDIATE BALBOA
17th June 2012
In this workshop you will learn how to create and control momentum to make your dancing really start to flow. We will work on detailed refinement of lead/follow technique to enable you to dance competently at all tempos. We will combine the core techniques of balboa and bal-swing along with other techniques and variations to form more complex moves.

INTERMEDIATE-PLUS BALBOA
8th July 2012
In this workshop you will learn to refine your techniques to the level where you can lead/follow subtle differences in timing and direction. Dance elements such as dynamics, musicality and syncopated timing will form part of this workshop. You will learn how to combine all of these elements to make flashy moves seem easy.
