Sweet Swing Edinburgh 2019

May 11 @ 10:00 am - May 12 @ 5:30 pm

Registrations are now OPEN!

 

Lindy steps, Blues tempo, Balboa embrace – Try it out!

Slow Balboa is danced to slower Swing and Sweet Jazz music and combines Lindy footwork with the Balboa partner connection, all infused with some Bluesy musicality. It’s just so lovely!

For this weekend workshop, you do not need any experience of Slow Balboa (or Balboa), but should be familiar with other forms of lead-and follow partner dancing and be interested in trying the close-embrace partner connection. You’ll be absolutely fine joining the workshop if you have danced, for example, a little bit of Blues, Foxtrot, Lindy Hop, Laminu or Tango.

This workshop is brought to you by Edinbop, one of Edinburgh’s premier Swing dance clubs and will be taught by Lynn Maslin, from Reading, one of the first and few active Slow Balboa teachers in the United Kingdom, and Sigga Gunnarsdottir, one of Edinburgh’s well-known Blues and Balboa teachers.

8 hours of classes plus social dances on Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon dance.

 

Price: £60

Venues: 
Saturday: Stockbridge House / Lifecare, 2 Cheyne Street, Edinburgh EH4 1JB
Sunday: Columcille Centre, 2 Newbattle Terrace, Edinburgh EH10 4RT
