Balboa

Balboa Classes

Balboa today is commonly used as a general term for dances that come from southern California during the 1920's and 30's. Which makes the history very confusing. The Original Balboa dancers have long passed and many of the swing dancers that followed continued to use their steps and sometimes styles to integrate into their "swing" dancing which some people today call "bal-swing".

As early as 1915, Southern Californians have been dancing their very own form of swing known as the Balboa. Originating in the Balboa Peninsula of Orange County, this dance incorporates intricate footwork with smooth body movements, creating a fast paced glide most enjoyed by the couple dancing the steps.

The Balboa gained worldwide popularity throughout the 30's and 40's, and is still danced today anywhere swing dancing is appreciated.
