World of Swing – Balboa/Bal-Swing 2

What Is Balboa/Bal-Swing? Balboa was very popular among the College Kids and the sophisticated dancers in the mid 30s and is now extremely popular once again.
Originally Balboa was a closed position swing form with intricate footwork predominantly based on 8-count patterns.
But when the hot Swing music really hit the scene some of the younger dancers like Maxie Dorf and Lolly Wise added break-aways and swing turns to the Balboa,
which nowadays is often referred to as Bal-Swing.
Balboa can be danced to any speed of music, from slow songs at 120 beats/min. till very fast ones at 300 beats/min.
Pure Balboa is probably the easiest way to dance to fast swing music, enjoy it, and look good.
