Baboa, also known as Bal-swing, is a form of swing dance that gained in popularity in the 1930s and 1940s. It is danced primarily in close embrace, and is led with a full body connection. Balboa is considered more of a "dancer's dance" than a "spectator's dance".
Balboa is danced to a wide variety of tempos. And because the basic step takes up such a small space, Balboa can be very easily danced to fast music and with much less space than other partner dances.
