Balboa is a dance form crafted in California across the first half of the 20th century. The closely-knit variation on swing dancing was shaped by antsy jitterbugs within the halls of historic locations like the Balboa Pavilion, where the conclusion of the Balboa Rendezvous event is held on Sunday. After Balboa strutters complete their sojourn at the educational stomping grounds of San Diego's Portuguese Hall and The Dance Center, a scenic voyage north to the Balboa Pavilion on the Balboa Peninsula ushers in one final day of swift-footed prancing, along with a question-and-answer session with the original masters of Balboa from the 1930s, still swingin' after all these years.
