Pure Balboa to St Louis Blues by Don Byron

Dancing solo is an excellent way to develop your style in a relaxed way, in your own time. This is me dancing to St Louis Blues by Don Byron.


In case you are wondering how to shuffle around like that, practice the Apple Jack until it becomes second-nature!


I'd like to credit Mia Goldsmith Halloran and Peter Loggins for teaching me at Herrang Dance Camp in 2014.

Lindyfest 2018 - Remy & Alice Performance

Check out this great videoTaken at Lindyfest featuring the Lone Star Championships in Houston, Texas. Visit http://lindyfest.hsds.org for more information.


Although this is choreographed, much of the in-hold stuff is lead or at least leadable! 

Pure Balboa Technique

Me demonstrating completely improvised solo Pure Balboa to 3 tracks: Apple Jacks, scoots and pivots with tripples, fans, shoot-outs etc (apologies for the awful sound quality).


To my shock and pride, Albert Ferran Toll commented on my video: "Man....you are Amazing, you are much, much better than I'm, congrats it,s reeeally good 🙂)".


Peter Loggins also commented ""GOOD JOB!".


They are my two most admired lead dancers that I learnt so much from.

The amazing Masha & Albert performing at 2018 BalLove Weekend Prague :: Music by Heart of Dixie


This is all improvised, believe it or not!

Peter Loggins & Katja Hrastar in Barcelona

Fabulous dancers Peter Loggins and Katja Hrastar dancing Balboa in Barcelona.


Note that there is no 8-count basic because it is simply a teaching aid. It aids your musicality to think of Bal as a "1-count" dance instead.


I admire the way Peter always praises his partner and the band after a dance - something I always try to do.


Again, the whole dance is improvised - wow!

Karim Ahmed dancing solo Pure Balboa in Brighton

Dancing to Dick Carey's Everyone Loves My Baby in PJs☺️


See, it's a 1-count dance really with holds that follow any one instrument at a time. You can see I am actually following the beat all the time by swivelling or Apple Jacking the weighted foot whilst using the whole unweighted leg to improvise to the music. That leg is relaxed and being lifted from the hip - it gives the dance a lazy feel.
