Bal Swing is the best Swing

Balboa

is a dance that developed back in the 1920s, but it's as modern and relevant as next Wednesday. It's been around for almost a century but it's only now becoming popular world-wide. Its basic moves come from Charleston, but it has a unique structure and assimilates moves from other dances well. It was originally danced to Early Jazz but it goes well with a huge variety of tunes.
With so many contradictions, what can we say for certain? First - It's the smallest of dances, doable in vanishingly tiny spaces. Second - It's the happiest of dances, only Samba comes close to it for sheer exuberant delight. And it's truly a dancer's dance - very hard to ever master, though the basics are simple and easy to learn.
But a picture's worth a thousand words and a video must be worth a thousand thousands. So take a second to use the miracle of technology and watch the videos on this page. They'll show you more than I could ever tell.
