Ballroom Dancing

Ballroom dancing is a dance that always features partner dancers, and it is enjoyed both socially and competitively all around the world. Ballroom dancing is also seen on stage, film, and television.

The “ballroom dancing” we know today has roots going back to jazz dances in the 20th century. These dances quickly rose in popularity, and a wave to popularize these dances was born. American styles of ballroom dancing can be broken down into two categories: American Smooth and American Rhythm.

Ballroom Dance

American Smooth

  • Waltz – A fluid dance to a slower 1-2-3 rhythm
  • Tango – Dramatic stalking steps with sharp contrasts between movements
  • Viennese Waltz – A more flowing waltz danced to a quicker 1-2-3
  • Foxtrot – Similar to Astaire and Rogers dancing, although the steps can be different

American Rhythm

  • Cha-Cha – Fast footwork that is flirty and rhythmic
  • Rumba – Subtle hip motion that is sensual and smooth
  • Bolero – Extremely similar to the American Rumba, the bolero is slowed down even more with sweeping contrasts between bending and straightening the legs
  • Mambo – The Mambo is classic salsa, but danced to a different beat
  • Swing – Some West Coast Swing built upon East Coast Swing. American Rhythm Swing is an ideal dance to learn for beginners

Reasons Couples Should Take Ballroom Dance Lessons

Since ballroom dancing requires a set of partners, it makes perfect sense for couples to take ballroom dancing together. Aside from learning to dance, here are other great reasons to take ballroom dancing with your significant partner.

Finding time to stay in shape while managing a job, social life and other day-to-day activities can be downright difficult.
