Swivels I


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.

To download a video, simply play the video, and a downward arrow should be visible on the playbar. Click that arrow and your download should begin.

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 lesson:


“Swivels” are considered by many to be the “fifth basic step” after Pure Bal basics, Out & Ins, Lollies, & Toss-Outs. They especially show off the “twist” of Bal-Swing wonderfully, and thus are one of Bal-Swings signature moves. They often come up in level tests for intermediate classes.

This is Part I of Swivels. It covers double-time Lollies, swivel entrances, basic swivels, and basic exit.

Look for Swivels II coming later in the year, as we will add lessons about once a month.
