Weekly, Monthly, and Annual Events Organized by Lainey
White Heat and Balboa Practice
On the last Tuesday of every month, Lainey and You Should Be Dancing! Studios host "White Heat," featuring live music, DJs, and the boozy Bal Bar! This is a place where balboa fans and lindy hoppers get together to celebrate our fantastic NYC dance community.
WHITE HEAT — Last Tuesday Night of the month at Club 412 from 9:30pm-12:00am! Live Music! Bal Bar! Dancing!
Location: Club 412 (412 8th Ave at 31st St, 4th floor)
In addition to monthly White Heat parties, we have Weekly Tuesday Balboa Practice from 9:30-11:30pm featuring balboa DJs.
Every Spring, NYC hosts an action-packed week of balboa dancing, one of a kind live music, and contests reminiscent of the "bal week" spring break tradition of the 1930s in Balboa Beach, CA.
Join us for seven nights of dancing, weekend workshops taught by world class instructors, and dancers from around the world. Experience the New York Balboa scene at its finest.
