Balboa is a swing dance that originated in Southern California during the swing era of the 1930s and '40s. It is a partnered dance that focuses on connection, footwork, and shared rhythms. Balboa is danced to music at a variety of tempos, including most of the same great music you hear at The Jam Cellar!
