Waltz

The Waltz is one of the smoothest ballroom dances. It is a progressive dance marked by long, flowing movements, continuous turns, and “rise and fall.” The dance is so graceful and elegant, Waltz dancers appear to glide around the floor with almost no effort.

Tango

The Tango is one of the most fascinating of all ballroom dances. This sensual ballroom dance originated in South America in the early twentieth century.

Viennese Waltz

The Viennese Waltz is a quick rotating ballroom dance with a subtle rise and fall. It is considered by most to be one of the most difficult dances to learn. The simple and elegant rotational movement characterizes the Viennese Waltz.

Foxtrot

The Foxtrot is a ballroom dance that is lots of fun and simple to learn…an excellent dance for beginners. The Foxtrot is a smooth dance in which dancers make long, flowing movements across the floor.

Quickstep

The Quickstep is a quick version of the Foxtrot. It is a ballroom dance comprised of extremely quick stepping, syncopated feet rhythms, and runs of quick steps. The Quickstep is exciting to watch, but among the most difficult of all the ballroom dances.
