East Coast Swing - In it's early days was also known as the Jitterbug and Lindy.  The
most popular form today is Triple Step East Coast Swing, which can be danced to the
oldies, country and top 40's music.  It is danced with a "bounce" called lilt.  It is very
grounded and not high in the knees. Single Step East Coast Swing is danced to Big
Band Music. The dance rotates in a free flowing circle.

West Coast Swing ~ The social dance you are most likely to fall in love with and be
able to dance anywhere.  It can be danced to nearly any genre of music including
country, pop. smooth jazz, R&B and others.  It is characterised by a distinctive elastic
look that results from its basic leverage-compression technique of partner
connection.  It is danced on a "slot" and is very smooth.

Nightclub ~ The new kid on the block when it comes to social and competitive
dances.  Today it is the most requested dance of wedding couples.  It's a beautiful
and welcomed alternative to the slow dance.  The rhythm of the dance is very simple
and rarely changes.  This romantic dance fills a gap where no other ballroom dance
fits.  It gives the dancer, whether beginning or advanced the opportunity to express and
create without requiring a rigid technique. The Nightclub is attractive, romantic and a
real asset to learn due to its versatility.  It can be danced to any slow ballad.

American Foxtrot ~ One of the most versatile of all the ballroom dances as it can be
danced to
a wide variety of music with varying tempos.  It is a "walking" dance, smooth and
flowing, with a brush and follow through technique of the feet.

American and Country Waltz ~ An elegant, nearly universal dance which is danced to
slow romantic music of 3/4 time.  It is the oldest of the ballroom dances. The basic
pattern consists of six walking steps with rise and fall, giving the dance a floating feeling.  
It can be dance to many beautiful traditional, popular and country songs.

American Tango ~Tango evolved in the dance halls and, perhaps, the poorer districts
of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The dance is characterized by long pauses and stylized
body positions and danced to music usually in 4/4 time.

Cha Cha ~ Originally known as the Cha Cha Cha, an exciting syncopated Latin
dance.  It's personality, character, and rhythm is gathered from two major dance
sources.  It is a derivative of the Mambo through its Latin music and is also a stepchild
of swing (Lindy) since it is danced with a triple step and a break.  It can be danced to
authentic Latin music, more contemporary Latin Pop or Latin Rock.  It can also be
dance to country music.

Rumba ~ Sultry and romantic, the rumba was originally a courtship, marriage and
street dance that was African in origin.  The characteristic feature is to take each step
without initially placing the weight on that step.  Steps are made with slightly bent
knees which, when straightened, causes the hips to sway from side to side in what has
come to be known as "Cuban Motion".   

Triple Two Step ~ (formerly know as the Double Two-Step) is often called `Swing on
the move" because it incorporates the fancy variations of Swing into the smooth peppy
movement of the Two-Step and Polka.  There are two triple steps, followed by two slow

Country Two Step ~ The most popular dance in country and western circles.  It dates
back to the 1800's and is the offspring of the minuet.  Danced as two quick and two
slow steps.

Country Partner Dances ~ Danced in a circle, everyone doing the same steps at the
same time.  Includes El Paso, Blue Rose, Wooden Nickel, Schottische and many

Contemporary and Country Line Dances ~ Danced without a partner in a line
where everyone repeats the same pattern throughout the dance.

Salsa ~ (sometimes referred to as Mambo) is the Latin equivalent of Swing.  The
dance characteristically has little kick like embellishments and more time is spent in
a two handed or open position.
