Buffalo Bals

Balboa Workshop with Valerie Salstrom
Featuring an evening dance with the Tin Roof Jazz Band
April 9th

SwingBuffalo and the UB Swing Dance Club present "Buffalo Bals", a Balboa Swing Dance Workshop with Valerie Salstrom, International Balboa Champion from Cleveland, OH. Balboa is a form of swing dance documented as far back as 1915! It was born on the west coast and reached its Hey Day during the Swing Era of the 30's and 40's. It was kept alive long enough for it to be rediscovered in the mid to late nineties during the swing resurgence and is now danced all over the world. Known for its versatility to song speed, it can be danced to the fastest big band songs out there without breaking a sweat. Couples seemingly float across the floor in a close embrace. Dancers were even known to hold and sip drinks while they danced.

Balboa is becoming popular in Buffalo and is danced every week at Lindy Fix. Come join in the fun as we hold a 1-day workshop taught by Valerie Salstrom, organizer of one of the largest balboa events in the world: "All Balboa Weekend". We will have a day of classes followed by an evening dancing to the Tin Roof Jazz Band! You get 4 classes and a dance with a great live band for $35 (students: $25). Registration is at-the-door only.
