DANCES

Balboa is a full body contact swing dance that is danced to rather fast music – but due to its close connection you can also nicely use it for the slow tunes. It evolved in the 20s in California and was THE thing to do through the 30s up to the 40s – and nowadays all over the planet. (And lucky you: Berlin is called a Balboa Mekka!) It’s the coolest and smoothest dance in the world: very delicate and with slightly crazy footwork. Balboa is super suitable for moving sophisticated or even dead drunk to various types of Jazz and other 4/4 beat music.

Lindy (Hop)
 is often more sporty, but Anna likes it smooth: you won’t be taught to hop – but how to get into the flow for joyful social dancing. You will learn to dance effortlessly, relaxed, smooth, tight and generally small to be well prepared for Berlin’s crowded dance floors – and for fast music! We don’t feature the show-off and acrobatic aspect of Lindy Hop, but use it’s principles (stretch and counter balance) to enable a real good connection between you and your partners – in both roles.

More clips can be found here and everywhere in the internet – but the best is to come by to one of the parties and experience it live…
