Workshop Format

This year we have decided to run with a single mixed level group.  
We will do our best to maintain the follow/lead ratios in class, however we cannot make any guarantees that ratios will be even.

The group will cover the following important aspects of Balboa across the weekend:

Rhythm – Flow – Musicality – Texture & Styling – Fancy Moves

Before registering please check the assumed knowledge list of moves and video demo below to be sure you are comfortable with most of them. They are the minimum level of moves that the instructors will expect people to be competent at executing, so they can build on them over the weekend.

If you have any questions or concerns about this list please don’t hesitate to contact us or talk to your teacher. If there is just one thing on the list you’re struggling with don’t let it put you off, we’ve been there too – Crab-walks we’re looking at you!
