Once a month we offer San Diego a 4 hour workshop of Intermediate/Advanced Balboa & Bal-Swing and get a GREAT turnout of anywhere from 30-40+ dancers eager to learn!

These workshops are led by Joel Plys who has an extensive history with Balboa. Not only did he work with some of the original Balboa masters like Maxie Dorf & Willie Desatoff but he started the original All Balboa Weekend with Valerie Salstrom back in 2001 and ran his own event Balboa Rendezvous for 10 years. He has also taught Balboa in 32 different U.S. states and 11 countries (and counting!)

Our workshop format usually consists of:

4:00 - 5:00: Pure Balboa Footwork/Moves/Connection
5:10 - 6:10: Bal-Swing and/or Bal-Rueda
6:20 - 7:20: "Woah! Did You See That?" Super cool trendy moves that we break
down for you to dazzle them on the dance floor
7:30 - 8:00: Take this time to go over everything you learned and ask the
instructors any questions you may have
