Rhythm dances for all occasions
Updated: Jan 21
This dance remains so popular because it is the best dance for couples to dance to when the band or DJ plays up-tempo pop music. The music could be a classic from earlier in the 20th century, a retro hit from the '80s or '90s or a chart busting Top 40 modern song. If it's high energy and up-beat, Cha Cha is the best way to go!
The lights go down and the mood is set. The band or DJ plays a romantic ballad. Time to dance the Rumba! The Rumba is still your best option when you're out dancing and the tempo slows down.
Rock'n'Roll baby! Great music deserves great dancing. The best thing about learning Swing is that you can easily change it up as the tempo speeds up or slows down. Swing is also wonderful to dance to Big-Band Swing music from the 1920s.
A bit more specialised than the other dances on this list, the Bolero is a favourite among advanced dances as it is expressive and stylish. This is a great dance for when the music gets REALLY slow. You could look at this dance as a natural evolution of the Rumba.
Fast latin beats are irresistible to move your body to! Learning to dance the Mambo will give you the best of both worlds, the popular steps and leads of the Cha Cha and Rumba as well as the energy and styling of the Salsa! Awesome in the clubs and on cruise ships, Mambo is king!
