OSD holds regular weekly classes in Lindy Hop and Balboa from September to mid-July in a fun and informal atmosphere. Both dances will not only put a smile on your face but will keep you fit and healthy at the same time - what more could you ask for!
Lindy Hop is a fun partner dance which is usually danced to the irresistible swing music of the 30s and 40s - but if it swings you can dance to it!
Balboa is a close partner dance which originated around the late 1920s/ early 1930s. Danced to faster tempos, Balboa is a fascinating, subtle dance which can make anyone feel musical.
