Another swing dance from the 1930s is now comming to the MLU university sports center: Swing Balboa!
A little less extensive than with Lindy Hop, Balboa is danced in a very tight dance position on a small area with fast music.
The joy of the "dance of the dances" can hardly be grasped by watching, because despite the fast foot movements and turns, the fascination for the leader and follower lies in small playful weight extensions.
This semester we offer a course that is suitable for both beginners and advanced! Unlike in the previous courses, we focus on the basic Uphold-step and want to bring in a lot of new styling and gimmicks - so if you have already attended Balboa courses, there will still be something new for you. Previous knowledge is however not necessary.
Educational goals: improvement of coordinative and conditional skills, development of musicality, rhythm training, expressiveness training, improvement of body awareness and posture, strenthening of physical and mental vitality, improvement of flexibility, strengthening ofself-esteem and teamwork, stress relief.
ATTENTION: Please bring flat and gliding dance shoes (alternatively socks) and drinks.
