Ballroom dances

Brought to you by: Womens Designer Laptop Totes. Whatever form it takes, dancing is one of the best ways to feel great. No matter where it is, whether at a party with others or all by your lonesome at home, great music has a way of getting feet tapping and bodies moving. Of all the kinds of dances around the world, one form of dancing has been looked upon as a form of art as well. That is ballroom dancing.

Although now there’s a range of dances that fall into the category of ballroom dances, it started off with only a few. Seen as a leisure activity as well as a competitive sport, ballroom dances are enhanced by the skill and enjoyment a partner brings to them. Initially, ballroom dances were an elite dance form, with folk dancing being relegated to the poorer levels of society. Lately, however, ballroom dances have become popular amongst people from all walks of life as an addition to their social skill-set. Its growing popularity has brought more people to dance studios hoping to learn how to dance as beautifully as the experts.

Some consider it a form of exercise, and as it does involve a fair amount of physical activity, it’s a great way to lose and keep off weight, without the boredom of treadmill walks. In the United States there are two kinds of dance styles that are included when talking about ballroom dances. They are American Smooth and American Rhythm. American smooth includes ballroom dance like the Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot and Viennese Waltz. These dances are hand-downs from the classics.

The Cha Cha, Rumba, Mambo, Bolero and East Coast Swing fall into American Rhythm.

These more modern ballroom dances, benefit from the contribution of Latin American influence. Ballroom dances have come a long way, not just in time, but right across the world, becoming more popular in Asia too.

Like all old things that have survived the test of time, ballroom dances bring with them a sense of timeless elegance, and it’s certainly something to say that you know how to dance the waltz or the tango. Dressing up, and dancing to smooth music with a great partner is guaranteed to make anyone feel special and is a one of a kind experience.
