Find a partner
Since this dancing style cannot be performed alone, you will have to choose the right partner for yourself. Make sure that he/she is aware of the Balboa Swing.
Determine your role
This classical dance form has one leader and the other partner is called the follower. So, you will have to determine what role you will be playing so that the dance can be performed with perfect rhythm.
Torso to torso
Another important factor of the Balboa Swing is that your torsos should be meeting one another in such a way that nothing can be seen in between them. You should be confident enough to hold your partner tightly.
Join one hand with your partner
You will have to join one hand with your partner whereas the other hand of the leader should be snuggled under the left arm of the follower towards his/her lower back. Now, the follower should rest his/her right arm on the leader’s shoulder blade.
Start moving with the rhythm
Once the music starts playing, you should start moving with the rhythm. Don’t panic at all and try to stay as calm as possible. You will have to move gently with the beat of the music. Take a couple of steps backward; first to your left and then to the right.
Footwork for follower
The follower should not try to do something silly while performing this dance. The best way is to continue moving with your partner. You just need to follow his/her steps and there will be a perfect rhythm between both of you.
