Balboa residential weekend in Bournemouth


Two full days of workshops taught by top international teachers.


Workshop Level

Workshops will be geared towards dancers confident in intermediate and above level workshops. You will need to have danced Balboa regularly for at least 2 years, and be able to confidently lead/follow a wide range of moves on the social dance floor, including throw outs from many different positions, out and ins, lollies, swivels, Texas Tommy. You should be comfortable social dancing to a range of tempos, adding spice with your own variations....
