Transcript

  • 1. Ballroom Dance
  • 2. Ballroom dance is a set of partner dance, which are enjoyed both socially and competitively around the world. Because of its performance and entertainment aspects, ballroom dance is also widely enjoyed on stage, film, and television.
  • 3. The term 'ballroom dancing' is derived from the word “ball”, which in turn originates from the Latin word ballare which means 'to dance'.
  • 4. There are many different types of ballroom dancing, with the main two being Smooth style and Latin/Rhythm style.
  • 5. The smooth style dances are performed with the couple dancing over the entire dance floor. This type of dancing includes the Quickstep, Viennese Waltz, the Tango, the Waltz, and the Foxtrot.
  • 6. The energetic Latin style of dance usually keeps the couple in one spot on the dance floor. This style includes the Rumba, Cha Cha, the Swing, Disco, and the Samba
  • 7. FOXTROT The Foxtrot was introduced in 1914 and has grown to have many variations. It involves the back leg and moving it in a smooth motion. It is very easy to learn and great for beginners.
  • 8. CHA CHA CHA The flirty Cha Cha became popular in the 1950s. It is based on a lively triple step that can be danced to Cuban music or Latin Rock
  • 9. TANGO Tango is a partner dance that originated in the 1890s. It is mostly danced in either open embrace, where lead and follow have space between their bodies, or close embrace, where the lead and follow connect either chest- to-chest or in the upper thigh, hip area.
  • 10. THE SWING Swing dances can be performed in a variety of ways. They include such dances as the Lindy Hop, Jitterbug, and Boogie Woogie. The origin dates back to the 1920s and 1930s. These dances are performed by using jumps, kicks, and energetic moves.
