The Rumba style of ballroom from scentedcandle's blog

Salsa is usually a couple partner dance although there are also solo forms, line dancing (suelta), and Rueda de Casino where groups of couples exchange partners in a circle. The word  ball  is derived from the Latin word  ballare  which simply means dance.

There are many dance styles you can choose to learn, however, the most elegant type of dancing is ballroom dancing.

The Cha Cha was originally called the Cha Cha Cha because its main tempo movement is based on a triple step. Ballroom dancing is usually performed by a couple where usually the male dancer leads and the female dancer follows the steps. Salsa dancing is a fine elegant mixture of African and European dance influences through the music and dance fusions that are the roots of Salsa.
. The original Foxtrot was faster and not as smooth and stylish as some of the variations danced today.

The Modern Waltz style of ballroom dancing comes from the Austria Waltzen styles of ballroom dancing popular in Austria and Germany in the early 1900s.

There are two main styles of ballroom dancing which are the international style and the American style. The Rumba is danced on the spot, rather than all over the dance floor, with hip and other body movements in a slow, quick, quick beat.

Jive is one of the five International Latin dances. The Foxtrot involves moving the back leg in a smooth action, although there are many versionss of the Foxtrot. This dance form is perhaps the most popular ballroom dance style in the world. The Boston Waltz became popular in the United States in 1834 and is a slower version of the Viennese Waltz. In competition it is danced at a speed of 44 bars per minute, although in other cases this is reduced to between 32 and 40 bars per minute.

Dancing well can have many other benefits too. However, the faster Foxtrot style of ballroom dancing is still taught in many modern ballroom dancing studios and danced in many modern ballrooms. Ballroom dancing has many genre and these include the cha cha, the jive, rhumba, foxtrot, samba, waltz, tango and salsa just to name a few.

Many of the jive s basic patterns are similar to these of the East Coast Swing with the major difference of highly syncopated rhythm of the Triple Steps (Chasses), which use straight eighths in ECS and hard swing in Jive.

The Salsa dance can also be improvised or performed with a set routine. The Cha Cha style of ballroom dancing originated in the Cuban Mambo and became popular in the United States in the 1950s. Today, the Waltz still remains as a slow type of ballroom dancing and the slower tempo has allowed the Waltz to have more figures, dips and steps added to it.
