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. Private and Group Ballroom dance instruction are available.
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.)
