About Caledonian Balboa

Caledonia Balboa is made up of dancers from Fife, Edinburgh and Glasgow who wanted to set up a group with a focus on providing extra opportunities to help grow our local Balboa scenes. Since 2012 we have been organising events designed to complement the teaching and dancing already offered by our local scenes and to practise and develop the dance we love by inviting teachers and dancers from other dance scenes to come and dance with us at social events and workshops.

Our main aim is to ensure that there are even more Balboa social events or workshops close by to look forward to.

Class Level

Improver Plus

If you have some Balboa expereience but want to brush up on the fundamentals, then this class is for you.

We will focus on revising and refining technique: working on movements every Balboa dancer should be familiar with in pure Balboa and Bal-Swing and making these, your own movement and the connection with your partner even better - smoothing off any rough edges to give you greater confidence to just enjoy yourself in a social dance and to be ready to develop your dancing to the next level.
