Styles of Dance

you can learn at SA Ballroom & Latin

Salsa

Salsa is the most popular social Latin American dance in the world. It's easy to learn and a lot of fun.

It's a quick dance with countless combinations of figures that encourage partners to stay close. There are many different versions of salsa the most popular being LA style, New York style and Cuban Salsa. All are danced to rhythmically complex salsa music that accents specific beats in the measure.

Waltz

Originally a forbidden dance, the Waltz was the first dance that involved a couple dancing in close contact. The Waltz first became fashionable in Vienna around the 1780s, spreading to many other countries in the years to follow.

The Waltz, and especially its closed position, became the example for the creation of many other ballroom dances. This is a beautiful and graceful dance.

Rumba

Some dancers consider Rumba the most sensual Latin dance, for its relatively slow rhythm and the hip movement.  This one is great for small or busy floors and can be danced to a large selection of modern music.

Tango

The Tango originated in lower-class districts of Buenos Aires. In the early years of the twentieth century, dancers and orchestras from Buenos Aires and Montevideo travelled to Europe, and the first European Tango craze took place in Paris, soon followed by London, Berlin, and other capitals.

The different types of tango that exist today all borrow techniques and patterns from each other. It’s dramatic style makes the Tango a lot of fun.

Cha Cha

The teacher Pierre Lavelle from the United Kingdom, a founder of the Latin American Faculty of the ISTD, visited Cuba in 1952 to discover Mambo (some say, Rumba) danced with the triple step in place of the slow one.

He brought this dance idea to Europe and eventually created what is known now as ballroom Cha-cha-cha. The music for the ballroom Cha-cha is energetic and with a steady beat. Mastering the Cha-cha will give you a solid understanding of latin body motion.
