Ministry of Balboa

Welcome to Ministry of Balboa

Balboa swing dancing has its roots in California dating back to the 1920s but came to Denmark in the new millennium.

Ministy of Balboa is a non-profit organzation that, for years, has been the main arranger of Balboa events in Copenhagen – especially in Råhuset located at Onkel Dannys Plads only minutes away from the central station by walking.

Tuesday has been firmly established as “Balboa Night” –  where all lovers of faster swing music meet to take classes and/or social dance at Råhuset. The DJs make sure that the dance floor is swinging and often there is live music by some of the best swing jazz bands in Copenhagen.

Dancing in general – and Balboa in particular – is about playing to music with a partner and there is plenty of space for improvisation, so come and join the fun and discover the next big thing!
