The Peer class is for dancers to whom most of the following applies: you have danced at our highest level (old level 3) before; you practice balboa outside of class; you dance balboa socially on a regular basis; you travel to international workshops; you are no stranger to solo balboa. To keep the skill level high, applicants will have to be approved before being accepted.

Slow Balboa is a slower version of Balboa. It is dance to music below 100 BPM, with slightly different footwork rhythm, but most of the figures and movement are identical. The Slow Balboa class is currently a mixed level where you’ll bee working on rhythm, figures and combinations which are appropriate for you.
