The oldest and best known of all Ballroom dances. Waltz is a progressive dance that features a lovely, elegant rise-and-fall action, ¾ time music and a 1-2-3 rhythm.
Tango evolved as a ballroom dance from the Argentine Tango. Tango features sharp movements, head snaps, and a cat-like and stealthy foot action and has an unmistakable staccato feel and major dramatic attitude. The music is in 4/4 time and has a marching rhythm.
This whirling, thrilling dance dates back to the early 1700's in Europe . Viennese Waltz is danced in fast (twice as fast as Waltz) ¾ time with a 1-2-3 rhythm and features a series of left and right turns as the couple whirls around the dance floor. With its elegance and turns, Viennese Waltz has an air of magic about it.
This smooth and elegant dance had its beginnings in a New York theatre in 1914. There, a vaudeville actor named Harry Fox began dancing a series of trotting steps to ragtime music as a part of his act. Foxtrot has smooth gliding steps with a heel lead, controlled movement and an easygoing look. The foxtrot is an all-purpose dance that can be performed to many different styles of music.
The dance began as a quick version of Foxtrot mixed with the Charleston and musical "jazz" influences. It is characterized by fast movement, often including a variety of hops, kicks, skips, lock steps and chasses.
Samba in international ballroom dancing is a dance of carnival and joy. It takes on elements from Brazilian Samba and is danced to upbeat and rhythmical music typically with strong beats. The steps are characterised by bouncing or dropping actions with specific hip actions.
A[ sensual ]and romantic partner dance, Rumba is the slowest of the five dances in Dancesport Latin. Many of the dance figures are similar to the Cha cha cha, but stretched out to a slower tempo. As rumba is an emotional and expressive dance, it is often danced by lovers on their weddings or on other special occasions.
CHA CHA CHA
Cha cha cha is a flirtatious dance originating from Cuba and has evolved to become a widely known dance enjoyed both by the young and old. While usually danced to Cuban music, cha cha cha is now frequently danced to Latin Pop or Latin Rock. The original dance is danced on the second beat of the song and consists of sharp arm and leg actions.
Paso Doble is a fast-paced Spanish dance historically used to represent a matador and his cape during a bullfight. It is frequently danced to the 'Spanish Gypsy' music or its derivations. The lead in this dance (as the matador) is portrayed as strong and macho, while his follow (as the cape) proud and graceful.
The Jive is the only American dance in the Latin American genre of Dancesport and is a lively interpretation of the jitterbugs swing. Similar to the rock and roll, it is danced to fast-paced swing or 50s rock music.
