Balentines Bootcamp

  • Avalon Ballroom 6185 Arapahoe Rd Boulder, CO, 80303 United States (map)

Balboa is a swing dance that features tight footwork, a close partnership, and lots of fun! The dance was born in the packed-out ballrooms of California during the Swing Era. Due to space constraints couples were forced to dance close together. From this a beautiful new dance known as Balboa emerged. 

In this Balboa bootcamp you will learn the basic steps and moves of Balboa and Bal-Swing. This includes the the basic footwork, shuffles, the come around, lollies, and toss out. By the end of the day you will be comfortable with fundamentals of Balboa and be ready to social dance!

This is Heather Ballew's and Javier Johnson's First Place winning dance at Lindy Focus' Open Balboa Jack 'n Jill. 

Leading the workshop is international Balboa superstar, Heather Ballew, and Amy Dalton. Heather regularly teaches and competes around the world in Balboa, and has won just about every major award out there. Amy is a local Balboa stalwart who teaches in Denver and Boulder This is a great chance to learn from two experts! 

If you already know Balboa, then we encourage you to take the bootcamp in the role you’re not as familiar with. If you lead, take the workshop as a follower. If you follow, try your hand at leading. Switching roles is a great way to improve your dancing.
