Balloon on landing initially returned to ground hard, with front gear collapsing. Initially lined up for runway 27, and was to go to runway 31. I was holding up other traffic and became unfocused on proper landing technique creating above situation. Once on the correct runway I believe the approach was ok, but I must have ballooned and stalled causing aircraft to hit too hard on front gear.
