About

The Balboa Brush Up is a two-day dance workshop, organised by Caledonian Balboa. This Improver Plus workshop will focus on improving the basic technique, forms and quality of movement within our Balboa dancing.

The workshop is being taught by Anni Skoglund & Gašper Hrovat from Gothenburg, Sweden.

Students will get 7 hours of classes, plus an evening dance and an afternoon tea dance, with the best Edinburgh DJs on the decks.

Workshop Level

Improver Plus

If you have some Balboa experience but want to brush up on the fundamentals, then this is the wokshop for you.

We will focus on revising and refining technique: working on movements every Balboa dancer should be familiar with in pure Balboa and Bal-Swing and making these, your own movement and the connection with your partner even better - smoothing off any rough edges to give you greater confidence to just enjoy yourself in a social dance and to be ready to develop your dancing to the next level.
