Latin



The Latin dances are as follows: Rumba, Samba, Cha Cha Cha, Paso Doble and Jive. These are popular because of their vibrant music and different tempos. They are also covered by technique books for those who wish to go on and teach. In the Latin dances, the ladies’ and gentlemen’s steps may vary and couples do not always dance natural opposite steps.

The lady can dance underarm turns and move towards and away from the gentleman, guided by his hand leads. At a higher level dancers may also dance solo for a few bars before rejoining the partner’s leading handhold. Many people dance for fitness, socially or for competitions as in the ballroom section up to world class level. Technique books and syllabi are available by contacting Head Office.
