Laura Glaess DJs & Meg Teaches an ADV workshop Tuesday!

Balboa classes start in September along with our yearly Thriller series!

Listen up, fine folks, because this published proclamation packs a punch.

1. Throwback to Modern Classics Workshop on Tuesday August, 30. It's a tad ironic to call any class we teach a throwback as we specialize in a dance forged scores ago, but we're doing it anyway. In this one-time offer you'll see cameo appearances from moves popular in the early 2000s. Bring your well-versed swingouts and partnered charleston to get the most out of this class. Meg's back for one night teaching with Jason for this advanced class from 9:15- 9:45 at our place and it'll only set you back $8 for the workshop and $12 for the workshop dance combo.

2. Thriller starts Monday, September 26! Not ready for pumpkin spice anything yet? Too bad! We're letting you know early that our Thriller series is on the way and it's going to be strong. Our own MTV star Jeff Booth will teach the original choreography from Michael Jackson's classic music video on Mondays from 7:45 – 9:15 at St. Stephen's of the Incarnate starting 9/26 through 10/17. It's a well-spent $60 for new students and only $30 for those returning from previous years. BONUS: Guest appearances from the one and only Tasha of Urban Artistry to give us the grit on movement quality.

3. BFD BREAKING NEWS: We give you the DC Balboa Club (DCBC). It's a brand new venture starting every Wednesday at St. Stephen's of the Incarnate. We launch on Wednesday, September 21 and wrap up when Armageddon begins to get unbearable. More details to come, but we'll run an Intermediate Track from 7:30-8:30, a beginner track. 8:30-9:30, then let you have at it in an open practice from 9:30-10:30.

4. Adieu, LHC 2016! Kudos to all the recent owners of trophies, medals and international bragging rights. Literally. If you're still in town, we'd love to share one last dance with you so come on by for the open dance at 9:00 p.m.

5. That's all.
