4 pm Balboa - A smooth and wonderful dance everyone in the swing dance world should know. Balboa is a swing dance that originated in Southern California during the 1920s and enjoyed huge popularity during the 1930s and 1940s. The term Balboa originally referred to a dance characterized by its close embrace and full body connection. It emphasizes rhythmic weight shifts and lead-follow partnership. In this class, we will review the basics of Balboa and quickly bring you to a comfortable level on the dance floor. In the end you will have learned something new or increased your skill level.
