Popular Dance Types

Waltz

The world reknown Waltz captures romance and marks special occasions for dancers everywhere. Originally an 18th century Austrian folk-dance, the Waltz is one of the five dances of International Ballroom competitions. The dance is called the ‘slow’ or ‘English’ Waltz in countries where the Viennese Waltz is known as the Waltz.

Quickstep

The first dancers to take the Foxtrot to a faster tempo introduced the Quickstep. There are echoes of Charleston in the Quickstep with the dance’s nimble hops and kicks, making it a lively and energetic expedition to the dancefloor. The Quickstep is one of the five international ballroom competition dances.

Cha Cha Cha

The Cha Cha Cha is a fun and versatile Latin dance and ranks amongst the five dances competed at international level. The dance draws its name from the rhythm of the feet on the dancefloor – ‘cha cha cha’ – and today’s version resembles the original Cuban Cha Cha.

Rumba

The Rumba provides the setting for a sensual and passionate duel between man and woman on the dancefloor. With its pulsating and rumbling rhythms, the Rumba is the slow dance of the Latin world and is often referred to as the ‘Queen’ of all Latin dances. The Rumba is one of the five dances used in International competition-style Latin American.

Samba

The Samba leapt from the street of Rio, Brazil. However, the Samba danced in the International competition style Latin American is very different to the original Bralizian party dance.

Jive

The Jive originated from the United States back in the 1940’s and it is is one of the five International Latin American ballroom dances.
