Modern Ballroom

Modern Ballroom dancing comprises of the five dance styles, and they are Slow Foxtrot, Viennese Waltz, Modern Waltz, Tango, and Quickstep. These dances are famous all over the world, and they are not only performed in social gatherings, but in competitions as well.

The five different dances have diverse origins and are danced to music of different tempos and have their own characteristic technique, however the common factor is that they are all danced by a couple in closed hold. 

In the closed hold dances, the couples are required to maintain five areas of contact with each other, with the man’s left hand holding the woman’s right hand, the woman’s left elbow resting on the man’s right elbow, the woman’s left hand on the right upper arm of the man, the man’s right hand on the woman’s shoulder, and the right parts of their chests touching. The dances travel round the ballroom in an anti-clockwise direction.

The Waltz  

Is one of the dances that are included in the International Style ballroom dance category. It follows a slow rhythm. Despite having a slow tempo, the waltz can have advanced figures that may require six steps per measure, which may be complemented with various turns.

The Tango

Is a ballroom dance that originated from Argentina. Ballroom tango steps have been relatively fixed in style. It is very structured around memorized patterns of steps and is often choreographed and danced either as a performance or in competition. It tends to be very stylized and theatrical.

The Viennese Waltz

Or the Wiener Walzer in German, is another version of ballroom waltz. It incorporates various types of rotary dance moves which include turning in clockwise and anti-clockwise directions. When performing these moves, dancers execute non-rotating change steps.

The Foxtrot

Is a smooth, progressive dance characterized by long, continuous flowing movements across the dance floor. Foxtrot is a ballroom dance that was popularized by actor Harry Fox. The dance is similar in its look to waltz, although the rhythm is in a 4/4 time signature instead of 3/4.

The Quickstep

Is a ballroom dance which is similar to foxtrot, but the dance patterns are very different. The movement of the dance is fast and powerfully flowing and sprinkled with syncopations. The upbeat melodies that quickstep is danced to make it suitable for both formal and informal events. The dancers should appear to be very light on their feet. It is very energetic and form-intensive.
