The Classical section, originally known as Old Time, changed name a few years ago to take it forward into the twenty-first century. There are many dances in each of the five sections, each dance made up of a sixteen bar routine which is danced in a circle around the ballroom with everyone dancing the same steps at the same time.

The dances are Waltzes, Tangos, Saunters, Two-Steps, Gavottes and Glides. Some of the famous routines include the Veleta, Britannia Saunter, Boston Two-Step and Lilac Waltz. Again, medals and professional exams can be taken (each dance has its own technical script) and many competitions and championships are run in the UK for children to adults.
