What is Ballroom Dancing?
Ballroom dancing refers to a set of partner dances enjoyed socially and competitively around the world. These different dance styles have roots and history from a range of countries that have influenced each other throughout the years.
Students will learn the fundamentals of each dance beginning with the musical timing and basic footwork, also known as patterns or figures. These patterns and figures are stringed together through body language to create a unique and individualized dance for each person.
Standard/Smooth Style refers to the specific dances leading from the heel in a closed position. These styles include: Waltz, Foxtrot, Quickstep, American Tango, and Viennese Waltz
Latin/Rhythm Style refers to the specific dances leading with the toe in either closed or open position. These styles include: Cha Cha, Salsa, Mambo, Rumba, Samba, Bolero, East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Jive, Argentine Tango and Paso Doble.
Other Dances we teach: Hustle, Bachata, Merengue and The real Twist for fun
