Latin American & Ballroom
Latin dance is a general label, and a term in partner dance competition jargon. It refers to types of ballroom dance and folk dance that (with few exceptions) originated in Latin America.
The category of Latin dances consists of the cha-cha-cha, rumba, samba, paso doble, and also the jive of United States origin.
Ballroom dancing was originally designed for partner dancing in ballrooms. Progressive or travelling ballroom dances are characterised by long strides that result in the partners quickly traversing the dance floor. Correct posture and frame are very important in ballroom dancing.
The combination of large steps, separation of the partners’ upper body, and a frame that requires the shoulders and upper arms to stay in one line, result in the need for a large dance floor.
The following are recognised as international ballroom dances:
