BAL PLAY: Movement & Rhythm

About the lesson:

These are the first two lessons of BAL PLAY: 6 lessons designed for Balboa dancers to get better at both technique and improvisation, all through the act of play. Buying one of these lessons buys both, and the same password will get you into both lessons.

Movement: Secrets and in-depth ideals to help foster healthy and attractive looking movement in Bal, from the physics and anatomy of stepping to the way people create the look of being “behind the beat” and residual movement.

Rhythm: The fundamentals of swing rhythm and how our movement relates to it as Bal dancers. Slows, quicks, Ba-Dums, triples, skipping, and three different looks at emphasis. Once again, all systematically broken down into small pieces for ultimate play.

Other Bal Play lessons: Punctuation, Kicks, Turns Coming April 14: Slides. See them all on our Bal Play page.
