Laminu/Slow Swing Classes

You want to “Entschleunigen your life”? Then learn how to dance to Slow Swing music!
If the music is really slow, you should try Laminu: This is an exceptional, elegant dance that provides you with the skills to swing it to slow tempo. Laminu is a sibling of Balboa from the late 1940ies and kind of an orphan dance – only very few people are still dancing Laminu, and Balboa, Baby! is one of the superfew who offer classes.
If the music is slow, but you almost want to do a Lindy to it, then Slow Balboa is your friend! This is a slow version of Balboa – hence the name – and can be danced to not-so-slow, but still mellow Swing music.
