Rock

Although Rock’n’roll owes its origin to Rhythm and Blues and Swing, it didn’t actually appear until the 50’s. It was soon to become the most predominant popular style of music, notably thanks to Elvis Presley and Bill Halley. Rock symbolises the regained freedom of the post-war period.

Cha Cha Cha

The Cha Cha Cha originated in Cuba in 1954. It quickly became popular thanks to its simplicity and its originality. This joyful and carefree Latin dance is considered one of the easiest. The dancing partners ‘play’ with each other to a lively beat. This dance is a reflection of friendship and recreation.

Samba

Brazilian in origin, this joyful, exuberant and extroverted dance with its bouncy beat is the symbol of the Rio Carnival. Its fast rhythm, accentuated hip work and its characteristic bounce truly make it a party dance.

Paso Doble

Paso Doble is part of Spanish folk dancing and shares elements with Flamenco. This lively, impetuous, proud dance with its rather provocative attitude, owes its inspiration to Corrida, where the man plays the role of the torero, and the lady, the role of the cape.

Rumba

Rumba is the oldest of all Latin American dances. Cuban in origin, Rumba arrived to France in the 1920s. With its exotic side and its pronounced hip-sway, Rumba is a seductive and fascinating dance. Very much a sensual dance, it is the dance of seduction and emotion… an invitation to Love.

A world-famous song : Besame Mucho

Jive

The Jive is the fifth and last of the Latin Dancesports. It is the ballroom equivalent of Rock. With its very fast beat, Jive is particularly energetic. It is by far the most physical of all dances.

A world-famous song : In the mood

 

Slow Waltz

The Slow Waltz, also known as the English Waltz, is a slow form of the Viennese Waltz, which was imported to the US at the end of the 19th Century. It allows couples to perform particularly elegant and romantic steps.

A world-famous song : Moon river

Tango

Before being danced in the most sumptuous of European ballrooms, the Tango originated in Argentina, in the poorer districts of Buenos Aires in the 17th century. This very rhythmic dance evokes not only passion, seduction, and domination, but also pain and the hardships of life.

A world-famous song : El choclo

Quick Step

This typically English dance appeared at the same time as the Charleston in the 1920s. It is a fast, effervescent dance, full of exuberance and joie de vivre, that delights all audiences.

A world-famous song : Mack the knife

 

Slow Foxtrot

The Slow Foxtrot first appeared in France with the arrival of the American soldiers during WWI. Commonly regarded as the most difficult standard dance, it still appears ‘natural’ thinks to its flowing and smooth movements without pausing, which allow for long progressions around the ballroom.

A world-famous song : Fly me to the moon

Viennese Waltz

The Waltz is believed to stem from the Volta, a ballroom dance to music in triple time practised in Italy, then in the South of France (la Volte) in the 16th century. However, the dance didn’t really rise to popularity until Johann Strauss II, an 18th century Austrian composer, who made it the princely dance of all the European courts. The Viennese Waltz only has a few figures, but is technically very difficult. Today, it is traditionally the opening dance at weddings.
