We’ve got a lot of dancing coming up this April, and we’re excited to share it all with you!

Lesson Series:  Balboa!!

This month we’re going to be teaching Balboa for our monthly series lesson.  Balboa is a dance that originated from the island of the same name in southern California.  While originally the dance just featured the iconic chest-to-chest connection, today “balboa” refers to an array of turning and spinning moves originating from the same region.  While the Balboa revival happened more recently than the Lindy Hop revival, the dance is seeing surging growth today. Learn how to turn and spin like a pro with our April Lesson series!

Check out Bobby and Annabel at All Balboa Weekend last year!

Alive and Kicking Movie Showing

There’s this amazing documentary about swing dancing coming out in April, and our friends at Vu-Do swing have organized a movie showing of it!  This movie is all about swing dancing, starting with its conception in Harlem through the modern dance revival.  It looks to be excellent, and we’re so excited that it’s coming to Dayton!

We need your help though…the movie won’t happen unless enough tickets are sold.  We’re almost at the threshold, but we still need to sell a few more tickets! (Edit:  We’ve hit the threshold, but you should buy a ticket anyway!!) Get on the ticketing website and purchase your ticket today.  There will be NO tickets sold at the door, so you must buy your ticket online beforehand.  Don’t delay, you don’t want to miss out!

Seriously, how can you not want to see this?
