What is Latin & Ballroom?

Latin dancing has 2 varieties; American Rhythm and International Latin. Normally categorised as high-intensity, fast-paced & rhythmical. 
Latin dances are Rumba (Cuban or Box), ChaCha, Samba, Paso Doble, Jive, East Coast Swing, Mambo & Bolero

Ballroom dancing also has the 2 varieties; Smooth Ballroom or Standard Ballroom. Normally danced in close body contact with graceful movements.
Ballroom dances are Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot (Rhythm or Slow), Quickstep & Viennese Waltz

Both these styles can be danced socially or competitively.
The biggest misconception about the dance styles is that a partner is needed, this is not the case, in group classes you swop partners and private lessons you are paired up with the instructor.
