Eva König & Kyle MacDonald
Eva was introduced to balboa in 2005 in Malmö, and soon after this dance had stolen her heart. She’s been around Europe at many dance camps and also taken privates from the best.
She started teaching 2008 at her home club WCJ, to share her love for balboa, and has since been teaching around the world.
The magic in the intimate dialogue between lead and follow in close position balboa is something that she wants everyone to experience.
Born dancing in the Swing revival in Canada, Kyle has been swinging since the late 90s and helping spread the love of these dances all over the world. Passionate about the pulse and connection that allows balboa to set itself apart from the rest of the swing dances, he is excited to continue to bring new inspiration and excitement to balboa dancing in Skåne since moving to Gothenburg in 2016!
