Balboa Bunch
(South West Swing disclaimer)

Balboa is a form of the swing dance in the Lindy Hop family, which evolved from Charleston and Shag. It is a smooth dance, danced in a close hold (pure Balboa) or the dancers may separate (Bal Swing). It is often only thought to be a dance for very fast music when it is at its best, however Balboa can be danced at all tempos down to Blues. An excellent way to dance on a crowded dance floor and very handy if you want to hold a conversation while you are dancing.

Balboa is a dance where people build communities, and friends. It is an international dance with workshops and festivals all over the world.

Current weekly classes:

There are also social practice nights held most months which are open to all levels of dancers and when we welcome new faces and experienced dances alike. You are welcome to drop in and see what is happening.
