Balboa Slower Workshop - last chance to book!

Sunday 30 April
11.45 am - 5.00 pm
Cutteslowe Pavilion, Cutteslowe Park
Oxford OX2 8NP

All welcome!
£25 per person (in advance)

Have you ever wanted to dance to slower swing music but don't really know whether to do Lindy or Blues?   Or maybe you'd like an easy introduction to Balboa using the same 8-count rhythm as Lindy?  

Join us on Sun 30 April to learn a beautiful, rhythmic & smooth version of Balboa, as danced by old timer, Dean Raftery and currently taught by Mickey Fortansce & Kelly Arsenault.  Here's a clip of them dancing to give you a flavour of what to expect... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4uPU1OA4AA  

All welcome!  Even if you've never done any Balboa or you missed the previous two workshops.  For those who came to one or both of the previous workshops, there'll be different content so lots more to learn.

Please book with a partner if at all possible (Follows ... leads just need a little nudge!)
Contact us at oxfordswingdance@googlemail.com  or at any OSD classes.
Payment in advance only - payable by cash, cheque or online.
