BALLROOM

Private and Group Ballroom dance instruction are available

American Smooth 
American Smooth styles include:  Waltz - Foxtrot - Tango - Viennese Waltz
You will also hear these dances called the ‘Smooth’ dances. These dances move around the dance floor in a counter-clockwise fashion. This style is mainly used for weddings and special events. These ballroom dances are elegant, beautiful, and dramatic, each with its characteristic style.

American Rhythm 
American Rhythm styles include:   Rumba - Cha Cha - East Coast Swing - Bolero
These dances, also called ‘Rhythm’ dances, feature many of the sensual, romantic, sexy Latin dances as well as the quintessentially American East Coast Swing. The Latin dances are “spot” dances, meaning the couples generally dance in the same spot on the dance floor as opposed to traveling around the dance floor in a counterclockwise circle, (as they do in the Ballroom or Smooth dances.) 

CLUB DANCES

Club Dance styles include:   Salsa - Bachata - Argentine Tango - Hustle - West Coast Swing
These are dances that have their origins in night clubs and dance halls, as opposed to on the competition ballroom floor. The club dances often have a full community of dancers who dance only this dance. Each of these club dances has its own evolving culture, legendary dancers, and legendary musicians, as well as new and evolving styles and cultures.
