International Ballroom and Latin Dancing are the established Standard for competitive ballroom dancing world-wide.  You see them on hit shows like ABC's Dancing with the Stars.


The Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot and Quickstep are the International Ballroom Dances.


International Latin dances bring speed, style and Latin culture to the competition floor.  


Cha Cha, Samba, Rumba, Paso Doble and Jive are the Latin Dances.  A study of these gives a dancer preceision, speed and control with a sexy, elegant look on the dance floor.

American Smooth Style dances are similar to International Standard dances, but with much greater freedom.  Partners leave the normal dance hold to explore dancing apart with beautiful arm movements and jazzy patterns that are fun to dance.


The steps and figures for this unique style are constantly developing.


American Rhythm dances are similar to the latin dances.  The Cha Cha, Rumba, Swing, Bolero and Mambo all bring a sense of energy to the dance floor.   Learning these dances allows dancers to be creative and have fun to a wide variety of Latin beats!
