Originally a closed position dance strictly called Balboa, it later developed to include fancy swing moves and became Bal-Swing or California Swing. Balboa is a fine mixture of dances, and should definitely be explored by any lindy hopper who loves to dance! It is sometimes challenging but only in the name of fun. No experience needed for our level 1 series, though it does help!
The best thing about learning Balboa is great dance connection, flashy footwork, and fancy spins and turns! We are trying to build a community of Balboa dancers in Edmonton, and we invite you to join with us.
At Sugar Swing we are intent to keep offering up the greatest in swing and jazz, and bal-swing is at the top of our list. If you enjoy lindy hop, bal-swing is the next dance you should try! It’s about quick steps, precisions, and intricate details, which can only help refine and heighten any swing dancer’s style. As balboa is making a huge comeback we want Edmonton to join in on the fun, so shuffle-step on to the balboa bandwagon!
