CHA CHA CHA 

Originates in Cuba based on a rhythm introduced into dance clubs by Enrico Jorrin, a very popular Cuban singer, composer and band leader during the 1950s & 60s.

RUMBA 

Also from Cuba – the music and dance we know as the Cuban Rumba stems from the Guajira, a dance that was very popular with the country people in the mid 1800s but from which a more sophisticated version grew during the 1930s. The Rumba is known as “the dance of love”.

SAMBA 

Is from Brazil, called the “party dance” and reminiscent of the great Rio Carnivals. There are lots of different rhythms in Samba, such as Batucada, and also different timings, which makes it a challenging dance to master.

JIVE

 Is from the USA – developed from the Lindy Hop, Jitterbug, Twelve Bar blues and Boogie, all based on Afro-American music: East Coast Swing and West Coast Swing, based on American Swing Music, and Rock n Roll using the USAs heavy down beat music of the 1950s.

PASO DOBLE 

Is from Spain – the choreography used during this dance depicts the story of a Bull Fight. The man is the matador and the lady his cape. Flamenco dancing has also influenced some of the choreography of the Paso Doble.

WALTZ 

The slow waltz (or the English Waltz) was developed from the faster waltzing of the Viennese Ballrooms , still in ¾ timing, but at a much slower pace, the choreography of the slow waltz has advanced so much , into a graceful and beautiful dance.

TANGO

 Originated in Argentina, when the Guachos (or cowboys) came in from the fields and danced in the Habaneros with their women ! The original Argentine Tango is seductive and passionate, with intricate leg action, the ballroom tango is a derivation of same, with the same staccato action but totally different choreography.

QUICKSTEP 

 Comes from America, reminiscent of the roaring twenties, using the musical influences of the Charleston and other rhythms to create a fast moving intricate ballroom dance which you must be fit to execute properly !

FOXTROT 

A beautiful, graceful, gliding dance supposedly invented by Harry Fox, a band leader and dancer in the early twentieth century.

VIENNESE WALTZ 

Think of Johann Sebastian Strauss, the beautiful ballrooms of Vienna, swirling coloured dresses and immaculately dressed men, and you’re there. Lots of fast rotary movements, not a lot of steps to learn, but you need stamina to keep going!
