Balboa Practice Songs and Playlist

Posted on March 19th, 2008 by

Here is a selection of songs available on iTunes that I put together for a practice Balboa playlist. While there are tons of great songs for Balboa out there, I selected these for their solid rhythm (good for learning and practice) and sorted them on increasing beats per minute (BPM) so you can start slow and up your tempos from there.
