To see Ed and Inez take the floor was to witness Balboa dancing in its purest form. Dancers would step off the floor to witness and admire their seamless technique. Their relationship was as close as their floor craft. When Ed first saw Inez, she was standing on a library ladder; he appreciated her dancers’ legs and asked her for a date. They were soon married and became life and dance partners. Inez danced a pure Balboa while Ed did a move he called “Ed’s Hangman” where their feet would sway back and forth while their torsos would remain static It was a marvel to watch.
