15thNW Balboa Festival Seattle, WABalboa Workshop
NW Balboa Festival 5/15/2020 City: Seattle, WA, USA Dances: Balboa The Northwest Balboa Festival is back for its sixth year! We're ready for 2020, shuffling our way into the new decade. This year's Northwest Balboa Festival will bring the best of what the Pacific Northwest's dance community has to offer.

Since its start, Northwest Balboa Festival has been about building community and making everyone feel welcome. This has been the underlying driver for every decision we make. We didn’t set out to create the largest event possible, nor did we set out to pack as many classes as possible into one weekend. This event has always been shaped and built by many members of our Seattle scene to provide a warm environment that encourages meeting new people and growing our regional dance scene in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
