Balboa Classes

Just a note that there will be no balboa class this coming Tuesday, February 27. Also, Barry is going on a well earned holiday from March 20 – May 1 (inclusive), so there will be no balboa classes at that time.

And we’re back!


Classes are now running again!  You can attend our main classes on Wednesdays at the Polish Hall from 6:30pm, or the specialised balboa classes on Tuesdays at the Pat Murnane Hall from 7:30pm!  See the Classes page for more details.

Ever wonder what would happen if members of TasSwing, Lindy Mob and the Moonlight Aviators ever got together? Well, check out these videos below to see a great performance of the Lindy Chorus for Frankie 100! (note the videos are the same, one of them is just in sepia, if you prefer that old time look…)
