Balboa

The cool relaxed Swing Dance from Southern California.

Learn to Swing Dance with Us!

We run regular weekly Balboa classes/social dances and a regular one-day weekend workshops. We also co-run social dances with Lancaster Lindy Circle.
Shuffle at the Shoe is our weekly Balboa class and social dance. The class does not assume any prior knowledge of Balboa, or any other dance! It's suitable for complete beginners, as well as dancers who's Balboa is a bit rusty, and more experienced dancers who are working on their Balboa fundamentals. No booking in advance is necessary! The class is an hour long and is followed by two hours of music to practice your new Balboa skills and social dance! Held at the Boot and Shoe in Scotforth, Lancaster.

The Sunday Come Around is our weekend one-day workshop aimed at improver dancers. We typically focus on a theme, or a small set of aspects of the dance. These are offered most months on a Sunday. So that you can get the most out of these classes, if you are new to Balboa you should aim to do one of our six-week beginner blocks first.

Thank you for another amazing lesson

Attendee at a weekly Balboa class

I have had the pleasure of being taught by Suzi and Chris for nearly two years now. They are excellent teachers, breaking down every move into clear, easy to follow steps. There is equal explanation for both leads and follows, so everyone knows what they are doing.

I am always laughing in your lessons. You are encouraging and make me feel positive about my abilities in dancing.
