Balboa vs. State of Origin

Once again I've missed State of Origin - I was at a dance class! Tonight we learned beginner Balboa, which was great because I haven't done Bal in years, and nothing beyond the basic step. It goes something like this, but usually, much faster once you get the hang of it. It's great when you're tired from too many fast lindys in a row, or when the lights are low. If you're doing it right, it feels like you're floating.

Once you've got a handle on the basics, you can also combine it with swing, and dance...wait for it...bal-swing, where you get more moves to play with, and can let go of your partner.

Am I the only dancing librarian? If there are more of you out there, what styles do you do, and do you prefer partner dancing or solo? I've taken hip hop when Jody wasn't free to take swing or ballroom with me. Do you kick it in the club with whatever the music tells you to do? Or do you stay far away from moving to the music (at least before a few drinks)???
