Dances and Dance Styles taught in all General Classes
Ballroom
 
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.
Foxtrot
The Foxtrot is a smoothest of the ballroom dances in which dances glide making long flowing movements across the floor.
 
Tango
The Tango is one of the most fascinating of ballroom dances.  This sensual dance originated from South America in the early twentieth century.
Quickstep
The Quickstep is a light-hearted ballroom dance.  The movement of the dance is fast and powerfully flowing  and sprinkled with syncopated feet rhythms and runs.
Viennese Waltz
The Viennese is a quick rotating ballroom dance with a subtly rise and fall.  It is considered to be one of the most difficult dances to learn.  The simple elegant rotational movement characterises the Viennese Waltz
Latin
 
Cha Cha
The Cha Cha is a vibrant, flamboyant and playful dance.  The light and bubbly feel of the Cha Cha gives it a unique sense of fun for dancers throughout the world.  The Cha Cha requires small steps and lots of hip motion (Cuban motion)
Rumba
Full of sensual movements, the Rumba is considered by many to be the sexiest of the ballroom dances. This dance of love is one of the most popular ballroom dances.
 
Jive
The fastest of the Latin dances, the Jive incorporates lots of kicks and flicks, even twirling of the woman.  Although Jive dancers may appear to be moving their feet haphazardly in every direction, the feet are actually well controlled under the body with knees close together.
Samba
Over the years the Samba has incorporated elaborate tricks, turns and acrobatic feats into its basic set of figures,  The main characteristics of the Samba are the rapid steps taken on quarter beats and a rocking, swaying motion of the dancers.
PasoDoble
Traditionally the man is characterised as the matador (bullfighter) and the lady as his cape in the drama of a Spanish bullfight.  Based on Flamenco dancing the Paso Doble is both arrogant and passionate.  The Paso Doble is performed more as a competition/medal dance than as a social dance.
New Vogue
 

The New Vogue dance style is an Australian form of sequence dancing that originated in the 1930's, and has become an important part of the Australian and New Zealand ballroom scene.

There are a large number of New Vogue  dances  and each New Vogue Dance is based on one of several  sub categories, including  Viennese Waltz Rhythm, Foxtrot Rhythm, March Rhythm and Tango Rhythm and all are based on a sequence of dance steps which are continually repeated.

 
Rock'n'Roll
 
Rock'n'Roll dancing was born in the late 1940's and became popular with teenagers in the 1950's, and is still as popular today with all generations.  It is a great dance skill to have to take with you to parties and social events.
 
Street Latin
 
Salsa
A very energetic Latin dance.  Lots of fun, complete with spins, sharp movement, and crisp turns.
Mambo
Originally from Cuba, the Mambo is enjoyed throughout the world.  It is a high energy dance with infectious rhythms and a distinctive hip movement, hence the meaning of the word mambo 'shake it.'
Merengue
A fast Latin dance that never slows down. The national dance of the Dominican Republic, the Merengue is a fun dance that is very easy to learn and is ideally suited to the small, crowded dance floor.
