Have you signed up for BalBozeman?

BalBozeman is just 6 weeks away! We’ve got so much goodness in store for BalBozeman, including two more of my favorite dancers. Amir Rosenblatt and Taylor Stender are coming from Seattle to do a little teaching and a whole lot of dancing with all of us.

Amir Rosenblatt was one of the first dancers to introduce me to the wonderful world of Balboa, and I am so thankful! He is one of  those leads who is soooo good that he makes a beginning dancer feel like they are amazing and an amazing dancer near swoon for Balboa pleasure. Additionally he is a well-recognized DJ’s for Lindy Hop and Balboa dances and events. He will be teaching an advanced concepts class and the DJ forum along with a little DJ’ing for BalBozeman!  Best of all, he will be dancing with all of us too.

Taylor Stender is a lovely lady inside and out so be ready to love her the moment to meet her. Great vintage fashion, a ready smile for everyone and she is a great dancer too. She has taught classes with the amazing Peter Flahiff and is seen dancing Balboa just about everywhere. She will teaching with Amir and social dancing with all of us through-out BalBozeman weekend.

These two wonderful people also have a few private lesson slots available. If you are interested in being a better dancer, no matter your current skill level, private lessons can be a terrific way to bump up your game quickly. Email me at bznswing@gmail.com if you want to sign-up for a private with Amir and/or Taylor.

If you are not signed up for BalBozeman yet, what are you waiting for? Learn a new dance or improve what you already know, meet lots of great people, and have an amazingly fun weekend in November. The BalBozeman goodness is available at www.balbozeman.info, including registration info.
