Beg./Int Balboa Routine
Stop! The Red Light's On

Format: Three week series!

Teachers: Heather Ballew & Ryan Romanoski

Come out and learn the balboa routine that got a lot of our Denver balboa dancers started! Heather Ballew and Ryan Romanowski are teaching “Stop, The Red Light’s On” for the month of February. This is a three-week beginner-level routine that is geared toward teaching and refining the basics. Routines are great for learning and retaining new moves and musical phrasing through repetition. Knowledge of these basic balboa moves is helpful: uphold and downhold basics, out and ins, lollies, and toss outs. It will be helpful for class balance if you can bring your own partner (but not required). You and your partner should plan to attend all three classes in February
