******************************************************
ALL PLACES FOR THE WEEKEND ARE NOW FILLED BUT...
 we are running some taster classes over the next few weeks for anyone wishing to try this delightful dance - or to practise for 5/6 May weekend.

Mon 9 Apr  9pm-10pm  New Marston Pastoral Centre, OX3 0DL   
Sun 15 Apr  1pm-2pm The Jericho Tavern, OX2 6AE  (see Last Stop Balboa post)
Mon 30 Apr  9pm-10pm   New Marston Pastoral Centre, OX3 0DL 

******************************************

A smooth and rhythmic version of Balboa, Slow Balboa was originally danced by Dean and Nancy Raftery and complements both Lindy and Balboa in the Swing dance genre.  Two days of Improver/Intermediate level workshops with evening dance and Sunday Tea Dance - for the bargain price of £125.

The aim of the weekend is to progress past the basic figures usually taught at taster sessions.  Therefore the minimum requirement for booking is that you are able to dance the Slow Bal 8 count basic.  

If you would like a crash course in the basic, we'll be teaching Slow Bal at some of our regular Monday evening Balboa classes in March and April.  
Please keep checking here and Facebook for dates and more info.  

If you already know the basic and would like to get some practice in before the May weekend, we'll be adding one hour practice sessions from 1pm-2pm to Last Stop Balboa on 11 March and 15 April.  Cost £5, to include entry to Last Stop Balboa.  
Please keep checking here or Facebook for updates.

BOOKINGS OPEN : BOOKINGS NOW CLOSED

BOOKING REQUIREMENTS :  Please book with a partner if at all possible.  Single applicants will be placed on a waiting list until a partner becomes available (NOW CLOSED TO SINGLE FOLLOWS, SINGLE LEADS & COUPLES WELCOME!).  Payment will be required in advance.
