I don’t think I’ve ever posted anything about balboa, the dance. I’ve never posted about it because I don’t ever do it, despite it being a very popular swing dance. People have tried pressuring me to learn it, but my interest in anything but watching it has been low. Balboa is typically danced to fast music and when the music is fast I don’t know how I could be happier than doing anything other than lindy hop and partner charleston. Balboa does look cool though.
Here’s a balboa clip from the Rhythmic Arts Festival I attended over New Years.
What’s funny is that I’ve seen a lot of balboa competitions, but the only ones I’ve had fun watching were at the Rhythmic Arts Festival this year and last.
