Balboa Intermediate Workshop

1:00pm to 3:30pm
Registration Open
Vaxx proof not required
Masks optional
Partner rotation optional

Finally! An intermediate-level workshop for Balboa dancers who are very comfortable with the basics of Balboa and ready for more Balboa shapes (rotational vs. linear, toss-outs and out & in variations), refinement in their dance movement and more creativity.

We strongly recommend pairing up with another person to ensure lead-follow balance.
If you seek a partner, post that at the Facebook event invite here. You could also try posting at the Toronto Find a Dance Partner Facebook page, or email us at simon at swingtoronto dot com.


This workshop is for newer Balboa dancers who can comfortably do the basics of Balboa, and for intermediate Balboa dancers who want to finesse their techniques and learn other moves and unique variations.
