How to choose ballroom lessons for adults
The best way for adults to choose ballroom dancing lessons is to bear in mind what they really want to do in ballroom dancing, which type interests them the most. There are two main forms of Ballroom Dancing, and we have specific programs for both:
The Standard European Ballroom dance consists of 5 dances:
- Slow Waltz
- Slow Fox
- The Viennese Waltz.
This form of ballroom dancing requires the dancers to be dressed in the appropriate ballroom attire. Knights should be dressed in a black or dark blue frock coat, wearing a tie, or if you’re feeling fancy, even a bow tie. If a frock coat is not your thing, then even a tuxedo or a vest works fine.
The Latin American Ballroom dance consists of 5 dances:
- Paso Doble
The International Latin Ballroom is the English version of the American Rhythm.
The dance consists of a set of partners dancing to tunes that have a distinct mood and rhythmic interpretation.
Being an overtly sensual dance, ballroom dancing is performed with skimpy costumes for women and tight-fitting ones for men.
The partners are either set close, semi-open, or open from each other. Latin ballroom dancing has more variation compared to standard ballroom dances.
This dance form requires giving the utmost importance to its choreography. The common movements include hip action, athletic, and balletic maneuvers.
From the above dance forms, only Samba and Paso Doble are danced with the most advanced level of movements.
Whereby the ladies dress in short, open, and figure-hugging costumes while the men dress in fitted suits.
