Waltz

This is a hugely popular and romantic ballroom dance.

The world-renown Waltz captures romance and marks special occasions for dancers everywhere. Originally an 18th century Austrian folk-dance, the Waltz is one of the five dances featured in International Ballroom Competitions.

The dance is called the ‘slow’ or ‘English’ Waltz in countries where the Viennese Waltz is known as the Waltz.

Quickstep

Known as a faster, more energetic Foxtrot.

The first dancers to take the Foxtrot to a faster tempo introduced the Quickstep. There are echoes of Charleston in the Quickstep, with nimble hops and kicks making it lively and energetic on the dance floor. The Quickstep is one of the five International Ballroom Competition dances.

Foxtrot

A slow-paced, graceful ballroom dance.

The Foxtrot is a slow and graceful dance, rooted in the Tin Pan Ally of the 1920s. Elegant and beautiful movements make the Foxtrot a challenging dance for ballroom dancers to master. The Foxtrot features in the five International Ballroom Competition dances.

Tango

A serious, powerful and theatrical dance.

The Ballroom Tango is one of the five dances belonging to the International Ballroom Competitions. Many see it as the austere European relative of the raw and compelling Tango Argentino.

Viennese Waltz

The classic Austrian ballroom Waltz.

The Viennese Waltz harks back to days when the Viennese aristocracy danced to the music of Strauss and other classical composers. Today the Viennese Waltz is still danced socially, but the ‘slow’ or ‘English’ Waltz is more standard.

Elegant and classic, the Viennese Waltz is one of the five International Ballroom Competition dances.
