April Balboa Classes

  • Streetside Studios 6881 Arapahoe Road Boulder, CO, 80301 United States (map)

Tuesday nights in April we are starting a Level 1 Balboa Series.

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. 

Heather Ballew, who regularly teaches Balboa both nationally and internationally, will be leading this series.

In this month long series you will learn the basic footwork and partnering skills, paddles, scoots, and some Balboa swing movements. By the end of the series you should be comfortable with the basic elements of Balboa and will learn how and where to integrate with Lindy Hop.

These classes are progressive, which means you can join either during week 1 on April 5th, or Week 2 on April 12th.


7-8PM: Level 1 Balboa



StreetSide Studios

6681 Arapahoe Road

Boulder, CO 80303



Each Lesson is $15 or a single punch on your BSD card.



Coming from Boulder, head east on Arapahoe.  Go past 65th street.  On your left there will be a sign that says 6681 and below it will say Streetside Studios.  Turn left off of Arapahoe when you see this sign (it is across the street from the BVSD Ed center).  Follow the street toward the direction of the reservoir, turn right when you can, and then turn right again and follow the street up to a warehouse on your right with the StreetSide studio sign.  Look for the StreetSide sign and you should be able to find it.
