6-Week Series of Balboa and Bal-Swing Lessons

Join us Sundays in Vienna, Virginia, at Born 2 Dance Studio (305 Maple Avenue West) for our Balboa and Bal-Swing class starting July 10th.  The 6 week series includes a 20 minute practice after class.  The next series will start September 11.

We will focus on Lollies, Toss-Outs, and Cross-Overs — staples of the open-connection Balboa known as "Bal Swing."  You'll fine-tune your footwork, solidify your stretch, and create a better connection with your partner, the music, and with the dance floor itself.  No previous Balboa experience necessary.

Plus..... August 21 -- Bal-swing Practice -- $5 drop-in fee
