Workshops in Balboa & Ragtime, then practice to a musicians' Jam Session

Dance Styles: Early 20th Century, Balboa

Price: £10 per workshop

Time: 4pm Balboa (intermediate) 5pm Ragtime (General Level)

Ticket Options: Pay on door

A unique monthly event that combines developing your Balboa with a fun Ragtime class for everyone (no experiences required) so that we balance our focus on technique with genuinely social dancing while understanding where many of our Bal steps come from.

4pm Intermediate-level Balboa/Bal-Swing. You must be able to confidently social dance Balboa and Bal-Swing using the uphold and downhold. £10

5pm Ragtime. This workshop is open to all. The specific dance style changes each month. Examples of styles are: One Step, Ragtime Fox Trot, Ragtime Tango, or Waltz. £10

6pm - 8pm. A Musicians' Jam, led by Dave Ahmed (Free with tips to the musicians)
The dance floor is open for you to practice to live music and socialise after class.
NB. This is primarily for the musicians to jam rather than for them to play for a formal dance, so expect different tempos and styles, although our musicians generally keep to swing and gypsy jazz.
