Beginning June 1, 2023 OnlineBalboa will be moving to a new streaming and payment service. As such, we won’t be able to carry over the accounts and passwords to a new location. If you purchase a lesson here today, or have purchased lessons here before, PLEASE DOWNLOAD THEM before that date.

And, please do not give those downloaded lessons to others; we’re a very small company run by two not-very-highly-paid artists, and piracy greatly affects us.

About the DVD:

Bobby & Kate tackle Pure Balboa from its roots in rhythm and weight placement, allowing for dancers to start playing with the dance from their very first step. It then tackles the two main basics and all of the fundamental Ad-lib steps like forward/back progressives, side-scoots, crab walks, and paddles. They also discuss tension, posture, shuffling, and the history of the dance.
