Hello everyone! Next month is World Lindy Hop Day and we are thrilled to be collaborating with Lucky Seven and The Swinger’s Club for the celebrations with a huge night at the Gov! Read on for more details about that. It’s a great time to reflect on where this wonderful dance came from and throughout May we will be sharing historical clips and interviews on our Facebook page. We’ve also put together a playlist on our Youtube channel which we will update throughout the month. Also coming up very soon: we have a beginner workshop (tomorrow!) and Balboa classes starting this Monday night.

Happy dancing!

What’s Balboa? Balboa is a type of swing dance that originated in Southern California in the 1930s and 40s. It’s all about rhythm, fancy footwork and connection with your partner. It has a close embrace which grew out of necessity to allow for dancing in packed ballrooms. It’s super fun and addictive!
