An Introduction to slow
"East Coast Bal-Swing Fusion"
"Balboa" is a phenomenal, close-connection, ragtime jazz era dance typically done to faster Charleston-style swing music.
"Bal-swing" is a hybrid dance that has evolved in recent years incorporating a whole host of fun break-away elements from swing, such as the "spike turn" or "Maxi slide". In this workshop, we'll dive into some of those delightful bal-swing elements, but in this case, ones which can be done to a much slower East Coast Swing (ECS) tempo.
In addition, we'll explore the world of "Bal-Swing Fusion" -- how to seamlessly transition between ECS and Bal-Swing movements (One of Ari's specialties & original swing-fusion innovations!).
Join is for this wonderful Seattle debut workshop!
