Every year The Kats Korner hosts 3 major weekend events, where swing dancers from all over the world come to be a part of them! Below is more information on the different events we host as well as their websites!
Balboa was a dance created in the early 20th century off of the coast of Southern California. The art of Balboa is in the subtle communication between the lead and follow, including weight shifts, which most viewers cannot see. As a result, Balboa is considered more of a “dancer’s dance” than a “spectator’s dance”.
Held in March, BadAZ Balboa is Arizona’s only weekend event completely dedicated to this intricate dance! It consists of dances, competitions, classes, and is a weekend not to be missed!
