Description

WALTZ:
The Waltz appeared as a fashionable dance in Bohemia, Austria, Bavaria and other parts of Europe in the late 1700’s. Danced in ¾ timing, the recurring, even beats of music send the dancers whirling around the floor enjoying the thrill of the Waltz movement.

FOXTROT: The Foxtrot remains the most popular social dance in the world today.  Little did Harry Fox realize that his trotting on a New York stage in 1913 would become an overnight success.  The Foxtrot is the foundation for many of the social dances that followed.  It is enjoyed by all age groups for its ease of movement and smooth style.  Foxtrot music is played by most social dance orchestras and is one of the easiest dances to learn in the American Style.

SINGLE TIME SWING:
Single Time Swing is East Coast except without the triple step.  It is basically taught to beginners in order to get them dancing quickly. It is also done when the music is too fast for the East Coast Swing.

Description

SALSA:
The word Salsa means sauce, denoting a “hot” flavor, and is best distinguished from other Latin music styles by defining it as the New York sound developed by Puerto Rican musicians in New York. The dance structure is largely associated with mambo type patterns and has a particular feeling that is associated mainly with the Clave and the Montuno.

MERENGUE:
The Merengue is a popular dance of Haiti and the Dominican Republic and is a truly lively Latin dance. There is an old tale about a very brave and famous military officer who was wounded in battle and developed a limp. A celebration dance was given for the great hero returning from the war. Rather than embarrass the hero, who limped on his wounded leg while dancing, all the men present favored their leg as well & thus the Merengue was born.

BACHATA:
It is a style of dance that originated in Dominican Republic and is now danced all over the world. Several slightly different styles have emerged but, unlike Salsa, they all share the same basic step. In partnering, the lead can decide whether to perform in open, semi-close or close position. Unlike Salsa, Bachata dance does not usually include many complex turn patterns, but they have come to be used more and more as the dance evolves.
