This time around we've snagged a coveted SATURDAY and we are bringing the lovely and talented Jen Barnett down from NYC to teach additional workshops in the afternoon before the dance. (Workshop event page: ) What is Balboa? --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Balboa is a specialized style of swing dancing that evolved in Southern California in response to the tightly packed dance floors and fast-paced music. Often danced in a close embrace, this dance features fast, intricate footwork and emphasizes partner connection over visually flashy moves. Do I have to already know Balboa to come to this dance? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Nope! We will be teaching a one hour beginner lesson at 7:30pm to get you off on the right foot (har har!). (If you plan to take the lesson, please be on time. Latecomers will not be permitted to join the class more than a few minutes after it has begun.) Is it OK if I dance Lindy Hop/ Swing at this dance? ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Absolutely. The music played will cater specifically to Balboa dancers (uptempo, smooth big band music), but will be totally appropriate for general swing dancing as well. Where is Illumination Studio? ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Illumination Dance Studio is located in the heart of historic Manchester, minutes from VCU, the financial district, and Shockoe Bottom. From the Belvidere exit off of interstates 95 and 64, take Belvidere St. south. After you cross over the Belvidere St. bridge, turn left on Bainbridge, which is the second light once you are over the bridge. Take your first left onto 15th St. The studio is located within a large renovated brick building with "Dogtown Dance Theater" on the marquee. Enter the building via one of the red doors, and Illumination is located on the first floor, directly ahead of you on the right, past the women's rest room.
