discovering balboa dance in corolla
Beyond where the paved road ends in Corolla, a unique dancing experience, the Balboa Experiment, is taking place. Merging a wide variety of different styles, the workshops attract a truly international clientele. This story from WRAL in Raleigh gives a great description of what it’s all about.
“In a luxury retreat along North Carolina’s Outer Banks, The Balboa Experiment pushes the idea of a week at dance camp to a whole new level. The program started as a way for fans of a very specific dance step, Balboa, named for the California peninsula where it originated, to share expertise. It has grown to an international reputation that attracts expert dancers to teach, learn and collaborate in a number of dance forms.
“I’ve been dancing for over a decade, full time. If you had told me 20 years ago this is what I’d be doing for a living, I’d said no way,” said David Rehm, founder of The Balboa Experiment.”
