Balboa is a swing dance that developed in the late 20’s/early 30’s in Southern California.  It was originally developed for crowded dance floors, emphasizing a close embrace, front-of-body connection, and fancy footwork. Balboa can be enjoyed to all tempos of swing music, traditionally danced to big band era jazz.  A repertoire of more open patterns evolved, which is now referred to as Bal-Swing.  Currently, dancers use a mix of both traditional balboa (known as “pure bal”) and bal-swing patterns to define balboa today.
