dance styles

we specialize in Smooth and Rhythm Dancing from basic beginners to advanced levels as well as social to competitive styles.
tango

Originated as a ballroom dance from the sultry Argentine Tango danced by gauchos and their ladies in the poor neighborhoods of Buenos Aires- American Style Tango features sharp and dramatic movements, head snaps, and a cat-like and stealthy foot action.

hustle

The Hustle is the partner version of disco dancing- a fast-moving, energetic dance characterized by its many turns. Originated in New York City’s African-American and Puerto Rican Bars, it is a mixture of Latin and Swing to the new modern Disco beat.

Rumba

In 1400's when European cultures were mixed on the island of Cuba, a new kind of music and dance began to form and Rumba was born. This romantic dance depicts the courtship of the dancers, utilizing hip and body actions.

bolero

The dance of the Cuban bolero did reach the U.S. in the form of ballroom dance, where European dance styles of Waltz were combined with Rumba. Bolero is the most romantic of the Latin dances, utilizing rise and fall with hip action.

cha cha

This dance originated from Cuba, gained popularity around the 1950's and was created from two other dances – the 'mambo' and the 'danzon'. Cha-cha is danced in a steady, strong, and energetic rhythm to authentic Cuban music, Latin Rock, or Latin Pop.

swing

The history of swing dates back to the 1920's, where the Harlem community while dancing to contemporary Jazz music, discovered the Charleston and Lindy Hop. This truly American dance is fun and carefree.

mambo

Mambo is a fast and spicy dance with strong Cuban motion, staccato movement, and expression of rhythm through the body. The music is characterized by a strong Afro-Cuban beat.

waltz

This is the grandfather of all ballroom dances and is characterized by rise, fall, and sway. The feet remain in contact with the floor at all times, creating a smooth, gliding look.

bachata

The original social dance was created in the Dominican Republic during the 1960's. It is increasingly danced to faster music, more complex footwork, impressive turns and rhythmic free-styling with alternation between romantic and open positions.

salsa

Salsa as a dance style began in New York in the Latino dance clubs (Puerto Rican, Cuban, and Dominican) in the 1960’s and 1970’s, and is ever popular on the nightclub scene with elaborate arm patterns and turning actions.
