Dance Styles

When someone says “swing dance”, Lindy Hop is likely what they’ve got in mind.
It’s energetic, quirky, irreverent, and dynamic… but most of all it’s fun!

In the ballrooms of 1930s Balboa Island, California, the jazz was fast and hot
and the dance floors were tightly packed – and Balboa was the beautiful result!
An elegant, energetic swing dance with intricate footwork, a close connection and incredible style.

The roaring twenties were a decade of decadence, rebellion, glamour and social change,
and at the forefront leading the way was the biggest dance craze in history!
The Charleston turned all the accepted rules of dance upside down and inside out,
and set the scene for all the dancing we know and love today!
Our solo jazz classes focus on moves from the first half of the 20th century (and a little bit more).

The lights are low, it’s the end of the night and the party’s moved from the
hectic jumping jazz of the ballrooms to the houses of Harlem.
The rent parties, the speakeasies, the back alley dive bars and dingy saloons,
where the bootleg liquor gets passed around and the music gets real slow – 
that’s where you find the blues!

Blues dance is all about music, connection, and creativity.
It’s slow, it’s groovy, and it’s definitely very cool!

What could be better than stomping your feet and making a lot of noise?
Stomping your feet and making a lot of noise with style!

The iconic dance of vaudeville and musicals, tap dancing is one of the most
widely recognised, entertaining and above all  fun styles of dance around.
Come along and follow in the footsteps of Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers!
