The Ballroom Dances
Waltz
The Waltz remains the only dance whose romance links it with lifes happier moments and
conjures up visions of colourful flowing ballgowns, weddings and beautiful music
It has the ability to adapt and change to the musical style of the moment

Foxtrot
The classic swing dance of the ballroom and one which most ballroom dancers want to dance well
It demands a high level of technical expertise, experience and skill while dancers glide
around the floor to some of the best ballads ever written

Tango
Developed from the Argentine Tango with no rise and fall it is an easy dance to learn and
satisfaction is guaranteed with its inspiring music

Quickstep
Invigorating and fun the Quickstep developed from a combination of the Foxtrot and Charleston
It is a fast powerfully flowing dance and a firm favourite

The Latin Dances
Cha Cha Cha
Belongs to the Cuban family of Latin American dances which includes Rumba and Mambo
The pattern and structure are similar but with a major difference - the Cha Cha Cha action!
Its cheeky and catchy rhythm make it one of the best loved Latin American dances

Samba
Samba conjures up the Carnival atmosphere and spirit of party Latin America
The shrill whistles in the music call you to the Carnival

Rumba
The dance exudes the strength and confidence of the male Latin lover whose passion tempts
his partner to become lost in the intensity of the rhythm
She remains coy while teasing and toying with the man as she lures and then rejects his advances

Jive
This dance has stood the test of time to become an integral part of the dance scene of the day
Starting with the Lindy Hop in the 1920's, the Jitterbug and Boogie Woogie in the 1930's, Swing
in the 1940's, Rock'n'Roll in the 1950's, the International style in the 1960's and continuing
with LeRoc in the 1980's each style reflected the mood of the era to make it a favourite
in the ballroom and at any party at any time at any place

Paso Doble
On the European continent and South America this is a popular social dance
Elsewhere it is rarely danced other than for formal dance tests or competitions where the
character of the dance is portrayed as a bullfight with the man as Toreador and the girl his cape
