Gillian, our Balboa teacher at Lindy Jazz spent an amazing week in France at Studio Hop Summer Camp Balboa week in August. See what she got up to . . . .
What’s that? A whole week of Balboa workshops and parties that’s what!
A chance to learn from top teachers such as Sylvia Sykes, Nick Williams, Mickey and Kelly, and social dancing all night every night with 250 like minded dancers from all over the globe. Balboa heaven!
The camp takes place in Eauze in the south of France surrounded by vineyards and fields of sunflowers. There are classes from beginners to ninja level so there is something for everyone.
There were 4/5 hours of classes a day, but plenty of opportunity to rest in between and enjoy the sunshine and Floc (the local brew….)
I learned so much and I loved having the opportunity to spend a whole week just concentrating on improving my Balboa and I have loads to practice now.
Going to dance camps is a great way to take your dancing to the next level and to put your skills into practice. It’s also a great way to make new friends.
You don’t have to go all the way to France for a week though, there are lots of weekend dance camps in this country – including our very own DJam!
So why not give it a go and expand your dance horizons.
Oh, and I’m planning on going back to Summer Camp Balboa week next year – who’s up for joining me?
