Describe this festival in 5 words:
Fanstastic Balboa Workshop Weekend
Rhythm Shuffle 2014 is Swing Buffalo’s seventh annual swing dance workshop. Our goal each year is to spread the pure fun and enjoyment of historical forms of swing dance, and this year we’re making it all about Balboa. Each year we bring in some of the world’s top swing dance instructors, and this year we’re offering double the instruction! Not only are we bringing Nick Williams and Sylvia Sykes back for the fourth year in a row, we’re also bringing in Jen Barnett and Jacob Wigger!
By signing up, you will enjoy a weekend of thoughtful learning from four of the best Balboa instructors on the planet – instructors who are helpful, friendly, and down to earth.
Each year, our workshop gets bigger and better. Swing Buffalo, as a community organization, works hard to provide the best experience possible at an affordable price. As a community, we work hard all year round to make this event something we can be proud of. In doing so, we hope to inspire and excite you and show you how much better the world could be if we all just learned to dance!
This workshop will offer 2 level based tracks: intermediate and advanced. We offer free housing for out-of-town dancers and our feature dance will feature a “Battle of the Bands,” between two premier jazz bands from the Buffalo area! The weekend will also include late night dancing, Jack and Jill competitions and mini-group private lesson with one of the instructors!
