The Damron


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:


Here was salute one of the legends, Roy Damron, who did this beautiful combination of movements in some old, grainy, 1930s footage of some Swing dancers practicing for a contest. It’s got it all! Open-hand Lollies! Multiple Turns! A Texas-Tommy! So make sure to check out those lessons if you get stuck or something doesn’t feel quite right.

Here we go over the basic Damron and then how to play with its pieces to either make it more musical, or give a leader more time to think. (And this lesson is only $5!)
