Ballroom & Latin

Ballroom dancing is enjoyed around the world in many countries and across various cultures. It has recently become popularized through a number of reality TV shows featuring both amateur and professional dancers. Our studio puts more emphasis on the social aspect of ballroom dancing rather than the competitive side.

The set ballroom dances can be split into two general categories: Ballroom, which consists of such dances as Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot and Quickstep and Latin which includes Cha Cha, Rumba, Samba and Swing.
