SLOW BALBOA TASTER
Slow Balboa is based on regular Balboa, but was developed decades later than regular Balboa. The main difference is not only that the 2 beat “slow” from regular Balboa is replaced with a tripple based rhythm in slow Balboa, but also that the feeling is much more down and down, where as regular Balboa is a little more “floating” on the dance floor.
You do not need any prior Balboa or slow Balboa knowledge, because we will start with the basic and give you solid foundation to build upon. If you have prior Balboa experience or just get the movement really fast, Jon can give you instructions on what to try while Annette and I continue with the basics – differential teaching based on students skill set.
For people that want to know more about Slow Balboa, they can join this group https://www.facebook.com/groups/slowBalboaDancing/
Cats’ Corner is a non-profit dance organisation from Malmö. Our main focus is Lindy Hop, but we gladly also dance Charleston, Balboa, Shag, Blues, Authentic Jazz and other Swing dances.
JAZZ IN THE BISTRO
As the dance closes for the night we “wind down” in the Bistro where there is a live jazz club every Wednesday.
