Dance Styles

Latin American Dances

Our Registered Teaching Facilities or Dance Studios teach 3 different styles of DanceSport. The first is the Latin Style. Which consists of the following 5 dances.

Samba, Cha Cha, Rumba, Paso Doble, and Jive.

Standard or Ballroom Dances

Our second style of DanceSport is Standard or what is commonly know as Ballroom. In this style there are also up to 5 dances taught depending on what level you start at. They are…

Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Foxtrot and Quickstep.

New Vogue Dances

Our third style of DanceSport is called New Vogue, and it is actually sequence styled dancing which incorporates other styles of dance. It is popular for beginners as the sequence of the steps is the same for each dance, unlike the latin and standard where the routine changes. The dances are…

Lucille Waltz. Tango Terrific, Barclay Blues, Twilight Waltz, and Carousel.


Some answers to your questions!

No, a partner is not necessary. Usually our Dance Studios will have dance instructors who will take turns dancing with you and others in the group class. If you do bring a partner you can choose to just dance with them.

Beginner lessons are mostly taught by accredited coaches and by Dance Studio Principals

Don’t be shy and don’t worry everybody who starts to dance is in the same position as you.  Our beginner classes are just basic steps and you can take as much time as you want to learn.

Everybody has two left feet when they start, even the most accomplished dancer.  A good reason to dance is to co-ordinate your body so you never again have two left feet. You will find your balance will approve as well.

Definitely not, as you are going to learn the very basic, fundamental steps. Anyone can start dancing at any age and continue to dance into their late eighties or more.  We have social dancers from 6 years to 90 years.

The dress code is informal. What you should think about is wearing a normal pair of shoes, as trainers are not that good as they tend to stick to the floor.

Well everyone learns at a different pace. You will most probably be learning the very simple steps for a few months.  After that there are intermediate classes, but this is entirely your choice. You can still stay in beginners, like others do until you feel confident to move to the next level of steps in intermediate.
