This competition is open to all levels of competitors.
Couples will compete in a closed position throughout the competition. Close body contact between partners must be maintained at all times. Judges will be looking for timing, technique, footwork, finesse, and musicality. Primarily, shuffle-based footwork is encouraged. Closed-position swing moves will not be rewarded as we are looking for true Pure Balboa.
