D: Fun Extras and Classes

Over the weekend, each of the following activities will go live with either playable session videos, or access to live sessions, as applicable. These will only be available to those who have registered to participate. You can see the complete Schedule here


Activity D1: Slow Bal styling and footwork with Shani

Now a live event! Look good and feel good on the dance floor as Shani helps both leaders and followers to add styling to your footwork. 


Activity D2: Shani Brown - interviewed by Jacob Wigger

We are looking forward to Jacob's interview with Shani.... Over 15 years Shani has social danced and spent time honing her slow bal and pure bal skills with Dean Raftery, whose Slow Bal dancing forms the very roots of the dance we know today. Over this time Dean offered guidance and feedback for greater understanding of his approach to dancing and the feeling he wanted from a partner.

Unsurprisingly, Shani is an absolute mine of information about Slow Bal as it was danced by Dean, as well as various tidbits of history and technique theorems.


Activity D3: Solo footwork and movement with Jacob

Experimenting with footwork and movement solo, as well as tips on how to make this work with a partner. From simple tips through to more advanced technique and embellishments, there will be something for all levels.

Well known for his large repertoire of Pure Balboa footwork, Jacob will explore ways to enhance your Slow Bal.
