Introducing Balboa classes!
What’s Balboa? Balboa is a type of swing dance that originated in Southern California in the 1930s and 40s. It’s all about rhythm, fancy footwork and connection with your partner. It has a close embrace which grew out of necessity to allow for dancing in packed ballrooms. It’s super fun and addictive!
