Learn Balboa in the beautiful setting of Insole Court, a Grade 2 Listed Victorian Gothic Mansion! We’ll be dancing in the historic Billiards Room, with heritage features, a smooth wooden floor and glass doors opening out on to the gardens.

The workshop will be led by Bristol’s tip-top Balboa teacher Sam Dobbie, who will be sharing his knowledge and passion for this dance style with us. Lindy Hop Cardiff’s Anna Rogers will be your host, assisting with the class and generally doing everything within her power to ensure you have a splendid day out.

This 3hr workshop will start with the basics and move quickly up to add more challenging moves and technique. This is ideal for dancers with some background in Lindy Hop, looking to broaden their dance horizons, but will be super accessible as it will not assume prior knowledge of Balboa.

There will be a social dance to follow until 7:30pm, giving you the chance to practice what you learned in the workshop and enjoy some classic early swing sounds and up-tempo beats.

For dancers with previous experience of Balboa, you’ll have the option of skipping the first hour and can choose to book the Improver level option (2hrs 4pm – 6pm).

Social Dance drop-ins : £4

…and why not make a day of it? You can buy tea/cake/lunch in the Potting Shed cafe on site. You’re welcome to join Anna there at 1pm for a pre-dance refreshment! There’ll be time after for you to take a short stroll in the gardens, or around the historic rooms, or relax in the stunning reading room before class starts at 3pm.
