Balboa originated in Southern California during the '20s and
increased in popularity until World War II, and is named for the
Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach, California where the dance was
invented. The close embrace makes it perfect for fast tempos and
crowded spaces, and the intricate footwork makes this dance
exciting and seriously addictive!
