Birmingham Balboa Classes – 10 Week Course Starts 1st Feb 2012

Hi all

We’re really pleased to announce that we’ll be starting a 10 week Balboa class commencing on Wednesday 1st February 2012 and running every Wednesday after that until April 4th.

The classes will start at 7.30pm PROMPT at Moseley Dance Workshop, 132 Alcester Road, Moseley, Birmingham, B13 8EE.  More information can be found on the venue here:  Google Map link here:

Classes will be taught by Stephen and Kerstin, will last an hour and cost £5 per person – payable on the door.

The classes will cover the basics as well as going in to the detail of Pure Balboa and Bal Swing.  We’ll be teaching all the classics as well as some more complex moves including: crab walks, come around, swivels, triple steps, lollies, Texas Tommy and others.

The classes will be suitable for beginners and improvers alike.  It doesn’t matter if you don’t know anything about Balboa or if you’re looking to improve your basics – there’ll be something for everyone.  You don’t even need a regular partner as we’ll be rotating partners throughout the class.

As we only have the dance studio for an hour, we need the class to start at 7.30pm PROMPT.  Please arrive at the venue in good time and be ready to begin at 7.30pm.  Latecomers may not be admitted and will definitely be grumbled about and frowned at.  There will hopefully be an opportunity for a social chat and possibly a dance in the workshop’s cafe/bar after the classes.

As this is a professional dance studio we would ask everyone to wear suitable shoes for dancing. Gentlemen – leather or suede soles if possible, non-marking soles are compulsory.  Ladies – low heeled shoes are fine, but please no stilettos which will mark the floor.

See you in Moseley on Wednesday 1st February!
