Not sure which dance will match your style? We can teach you a variety of dances, including:

Salsa dancing -

originating in the Cuban son and rumba, this style is continually evolving and named according to the geographical area where it developed.

Mambo -

made popular almost single-handedly by Cuban bandleader Perez Prado, the mambo can be done according to the individual's temperament.

Hustle -

this was developed during the disco era and features free rhythmic interpretation.

East Coast swing -

evolving from the Lindy hop, this may be the most famous American folk dance.

West Coast swing -

this incorporates many forms of swing, including the Lindy, shag, whip and push.

Merengue -

both Haiti and the Dominican Republic claim this dance as their own, referring to it as their "singing dance."

Rumba -

the slowest of the five competitive international Latin dances; its steps are rather compact.

Cha-cha -

another dance of Cuban origin, it's primarily derived indirectly from the mambo, rumba and the Lindy.

Samba -

like many dances from Brazil, this dance merges African and Latin American rhythms with expressive, melodic lines.

Bolero -

this Spanish dance is known as the "dance of love" for its expression of sensuous feelings.

Paso doble -

this dance is based around the actions of a Spanish matador and features sharp movements.

Jive -

this dance evolved from 1930s dances in America, such as the jitterbug, boogie-woogie, Lindy hop, East Coast swing and shag.

Our smooth dances include:

Argentine tango -

this dance was developed in turn-of-the-century Buenos Aires in a melting pot of culture.

Foxtrot -

this is considered the first "slow step" dance developed, as the partners dance much closer together and ad-lib movements.

Tango -

this dance descends from the milonga, an early Spanish folk dance, with traces of Moorish and Arabic ancestry.

Waltz -

dating back to the country folk dances of 17th century Bavaria, it's characterized by the sway, rise and fall movements.

Viennese waltz -

unlike the regular waltz, rise is created through the knees and body, rather than rising above their normal standing height.

Quickstep -

this dance is rooted in ragtime and uses many jumps, hops and syncopations.
