CHA - CHA - CHA or simply cha-cha, although if called the cha cha would be technically incorrect is a dance of Cuban origin. It is danced to the music of the same name introduced by Cuban composer and violinist Enrique Jorrin in the early 1950s. This rhythm was developed from the danzón-mambo.
RUMBA - The Rumba is the spirit and soul of Latin American music and dance. The fascinating rhythms and bodily expressions make the Rumba one of the most popular and most energetic ballroom dances.
JIVE - dance style that originated in the United States from African-Americans in the early 1930s. It is a lively and uninhibited variation of the Jitterbug, a form of Swing dance.
PASO DOBLE - lively style of dance to the duple meter march-like pasodoble music. It is modelled after the sound, drama, and movement of the Spanish and Portuguese bullfight. The traditional version as couple's dance originated in France, and was then adopted in Spain and Portugal.
WALTZ - one of the five dances in the Standard (or Modern) category of the International Style ballroom dances. It was previously referred to as Slow Waltz or English Waltz.
QUICKSTEP - English in origin, and was standardized in 1927. Although it came from the Foxtrot, the Quickstep now is quite separate. Unlike the modern Foxtrot, the feet often close and syncopated (split-beat) steps occur often.
FOXTROT - the most significant development in all of ballroom dancing. The combination of quick and slow steps permits more flexibility and gives much greater dancing pleasure than the one-step and two-step more traditional ballroom dances.
TANGO - distinctive dance and the corresponding musical style of tango music, began in the working-class port neighborhoods of Buenos Aires(Argentina); and years later in Montevideo, Uruguay; the area of the Rio de la Plata.
