Balboa is a swing dance that originated in Southern California during the 1920s and 1930s.

The term Balboa originally referred to a dance characterised by its close hold and full body connection. It emphasises rhythmic weight shifts and lead-follow partnership.

It’s a lovely, elegant dance – a contemporary of Lindy Hop, it’s all about the connection and is a perfect alternative for faster tempos.
