Ballroom, Modern, Standard, International and Dancesport.pptx

  1. 1. The difference between Ballroom, Modern, Standard, International and Dancesport.
  2. 2. • There are a number of different types of dance that may look the same, but are quite different. These types of dances stem from different traditions, and use different music and slightly modified movements.
  3. 3. Ballroom • Ballroom dance is a set of partner dances, which are enjoyed both socially and competitively around the world. Ballroom dance may refer, at its widest definition, to almost any type of partner dancing as recreation.
  4. 4. Ballroom • Ballroom dance is a set of partner dances, 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.
  5. 5. Modern • Modern dance is often considered to have emerged as a rejection of, or rebellion against classical ballet. In the late 19th century, dance artists such as Isadora Duncan, Maud Allan, and Loie Fuller were pioneering new forms and practices in what is now called aesthetic or free dance for performance.
  6. 6. Standard • Standard dancing is another term for some of the same ballroom, or partner, dancing. Dances that fall into the “standard” category are the waltz, the tango, the foxtrot, the Viennese waltz and the quickstep. When these dances are done for a competition, they become known as International Standard.
  7. 7. International • International dances are a catchall term for the competitive versions of ballroom dances. There are two main categories: International Standard, which includes the tango and the Viennese waltz; and International Latin, which includes the Rumba, the Paso Doble and the Cha-Cha-Cha.
  8. 8. Dancesport • Dancesport is a competitive form of ballroom dancing. It is done in front of judges, in the form of dance that is required of the competitors. This can be everything from the waltz to the slow foxtrot. There are different categories for age and skill level.
