Balboa (Online) Practice Playlist

Posted on February 11th, 2011 by

NOTE: Unfortunately, it appears that the Grooveshark player is no longer working. Sorry for the inconvenience.

In order to further help those of you taking our Balboa class, we’ve put together an “online” practice playlist. Now all you have to do is set your laptop next to your practice space at home (or even better, hook it up to your stereo) and press play on the widget on the right.

These are a list of songs we found on the Grooveshark service. We purposely picked songs that have a clear beat and a steady rhythm. This should make it easy for those starting out with Balboa to practice to. For the most part, the playlist starts slow and gets faster with each song you progress to.

If you enjoy the music, we encourage you to drop by your favorite music service (or music store) and purchase them. It’s great to support swing music! We’ve also compiled a list of suggested practice music that is available specifically on iTunes.

“I wanted to send a little note expressing my appreciation for the amazing job you did teaching me how to dance. I went to all the events for ORLX this past weekend and had some wonderful compliments about my dancing. The biggest one, that topped them all was when a lead said to me, "...your style of dancing is so authentic. It is how the old timers would say they used to dance." Thank you, thank you, thank you...for keeping true to the origin of the dance and passing that on to your students without corruption. It made me extra proud to say who my instructors were. Another lead I danced with was from JAX and attended your workshop there and after I told him who I learned from he said, "oh, yes of course! you are so lucky to have them in Orlando." I just beamed and agreed. What more can one say...keep up the good work seems trite, but it is heartfelt!”
