balance.sty is part of the preprint bundle. The most recommendable way is to install preprint using the package manager of your distribution.

For completeness, of course you could download balance from CTAN (.dtx and .ins file) and run the .ins file with LaTeX. Further explanation on installing can be found on this site.
