The Types Of Latin Dancing

We Specialize In International Latin

International ballroom is one of two “schools” of ballroom dancing, now regulated by the World Dance Council (WDC) and the World DanceSport Federation (WDSF). It comprises two categories: Standard and Latin. There are a few differences between International Latin and American Rhythm from the American “school” of ballroom dancing. While both have some dances in common, such as Cha Cha and Rumba, there are differences in technique, styling, and allowed figures. American Rhythm allows for a more relaxed hold, incorporates more open movements, and emphasizes individual expression. International Latin emphasizes maintaining a closer partner connection, sharper expressive hip action, and more distinct footwork.

Although our instructors are experienced in both schools and its’ respective dances, at DQ Ballroom and Fitness we dedicate our group classes to the Latin dances from the International school.
