Beginner Balboa Crash Course!

Here's the moment you've been waiting for! We're hosting a one-day workshop of Balboa taught by Irina Amzashvili, Anthony Chen, and Guest Star Natalia Eristavi. This is a style of swing dance that is characterized by its close embrace and footwork finesse, often danced to more upbeat swing tempos. We rotate partners in class, and we'll start you off from the beginning, so no partner or experience required!

Schedule:
11:00AM - 1:00 PM (Pure Bal Fundamentals): Starting from scratch, we'll go over the closed position basics, connection, aesthetic, and critical vocabulary to get you on the dance floor.
1:00 - 2:00 (Lunch break): Bring a lunch and eat and hang out!
2:00 - 4:00 (Bal-Swing Fundamentals): This is going to open up the dance a bit for ya. Feel that stretch, throw in some spins and take it up a notch!

Date/Time:
Saturday, August 18th 11am-4pm

Cost: 
$45 for the beginner crash course (4 hours)

Location:
Ballroom Utah, 3030 S Main St, Salt Lake City, Utah
