During the jazz age when many different dance styles co existed, people often ran out of space on the dance floor which restricted the space to dance big thus resulting in the evolution of Balboa. It is slowly gaining popularity in the Netherlands although it is very popular in the states and many other countries in Europe. Balboa is usually danced on faster swing music.
