Balboa Dance

Swing On In Dance School Does the Balboa Dance

Like many swing dance styles the Balboa dance is a contemporary of the Lindy Hop. Unlike some swing dance styles that originate from the southern states of the USA, this one takes its roots from California on the West Coast. It is said to have originated in the 1930’s.

The Balboa dance is a partner dance where each partner connects at chest level and uses footwork which is both intricate and small making it well suited for crowded floors and fast music. Fancy spins and other flashy moves are something you can also see in the Balboa Dance.

Being a jazz style dance means this style can be danced to older jazz styles such as Dixieland as well as swing music.
