as something we develop for the workplace.
But think of them as strengths,
they open up a huge number of opportunities.

Dance Styles: American vs International

The American style smooth dances allow the dancers to be in open positions allowing much freedom of choreography. The nine dances of American style ballroom dances are divided into two groups: 1) Smooth style consisting of: foxtrot, waltz, tango, and Viennese waltz and 2) Rhythm style consisting of: cha cha, rumba, East Coast Swing, bolero, and mambo.

The 10 International Style dances are divided into two categories: 1) standard, consisting of waltz, tango, Viennese waltz, slow foxtrot, and quickstep and 2) Latin, consisting of cha cha, samba, rumba, paso doble, and jive. The Internationally recognized style of ballroom dancing requires the couples to remain in closed dance position throughout the dances in the five "standard dances".
