*NEW* Weekly Balboa dance classes — every Thursday in Cambridge, in the upstairs room at The Boathouse pub on Mitcham's corner. This week beginners and intermediate level classes.
What's Balboa? Balboa is a partner dance originating from Southern California in the 1920s and '30s, danced to the Swing and Jazz music popular at the time. A wonderfully fluid and sophisticated dance that allows elegance and style of those who dance it and has the ability to turn two dancers into one. You'll sure to be having great fun dancing Balboa all night long!
Q: What should I wear?
A: Just wear some comfortable clothing, open toed shoes, sandals or really grippy rubber soles are not advised but you don't need special dance shoes.
Q:Do I need to bring a partner?
A:No, we change partners during the class so we dance with everyone.
Q:I'm too old for this
A: Balboa is a compact and efficient dance that you'll be dancing well into your 90s!
Q: I'm scared!
A: We'll be starting with the basics and recapping regularly so you'll be picking it up in no time. Best advice it to just give it a go! Find out what you're missing.
Q: Do I need to pre-book?
A: No, just turn up.
Q:Where is it?
A: At The Boathouse pub on Mitcham's Corner. The entrance to the upstairs room in the pub is a little hidden, if you can't find it please ask the bar staff.
