A Day of Balboa with Mel & Jo - 14 Sept

After May's hugely popular workshop, we're delighted to announce that Mel & Jo, are coming back to Oxford to teach another one-day workshop on Sunday 14 September 2014.  As two of the UK's foremost Balboa dancers, international competition winners and all-round lovely people, don't miss this opportunity to progress, refine and re-tune your Balboa.  

AIMED AT Improver/Intermediate level dancers, the workshop will focus on fundamentals, connection and musicality.  As a minimum, you should be familiar with the Pure Bal basics, scoots, paddles, lollies, out & in, come around and basic throw-out.  (Please note, the content will be different to the previous workshops in May)

THE DAY will consist of 3 hours of workshops followed by Last Stop Balboa - the Birthday One. In a happy coincidence, both Last Stop and young Monty will be a whole year old on the same day!  So we've had a word with Monty and he's agreed to a joint first birthday celebration on condition that his favourite band, Hot Club 42, play Happy Birthday and there's lots of tea & cake.  How could we refuse?

PRICE:  Workshops and Last Stop Balboa £35
Workshops only £30
Last Stop Balboa only £8

SCHEDULE (draft)
Doors open 11.00am
Workshops from 11.30-1.00, 2.00-3.30 (lunch 1.00-2.00)
