6-Week Series of Bal-Swing Dancing Lessons

Join us Sundays in Vienna, Virginia, at Born 2 Dance Studio (305 Maple Avenue West) for our Bal-Swing class starting May 1st.  The 6 week series includes a 20 minute practice after class but dark May 29 (Memorial weekend).  The next series will start July 10.

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..... June 26 -- Bal-swing Practice -- $5 drop-in fee
