"Dancing can reveal all the mystery that music conceals." - Charles Baudelaire

The Balboa Park Club


Balboa Park Dancers meet twice a week in the historic Balboa Park Club building located at 2150 Pan American Rd W. in beautiful Balboa Park. Read about the fascinating history here.


The Balboa Park Club building was first constructed for the park’s 1915 exposition to house the state of New Mexico’s exhibits. It was later remodeled and enlarged for the 1935 exposition. It was during this period that sculptor Frederick Schweigardt and painter Belle Baraceneau created their striking fountain and mural which adorn the building’s grand foyer. The main Ballroom features approximately 13,000 sq. ft. of unobstructed wood dance floor.

Did you know? In the early 20th century, the on-screen dance pairing of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers greatly influenced ballroom dancing in the USA. Although both actors had separate projects and careers, they are associated for their filmed dance sequences together, which included portrayals of early 20th century dancers Vernon and Irene Castle and have reached iconic status.
