Ballroom dancing is divided into 2 major categories, each with 2 sub-categories. Each dance is beautiful and challenging in its own way. At Imperial Ballroom Dance Center, we specialize in helping you to reach your goals and dreams no matter the style you enjoy.
International: Standard & Latin
American: Smooth & Rhythm
International Standard & American Smooth: When many people think of Ballroom Dancing, they imagine an elegant prince and princess spinning through a grand ballroom! Gentlemen in tuxedos. Ladies in long ballgowns. Standard & Smooth are elegant dances that revolve in a counter-clockwise motion around the floor. Each style features Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, and Viennese Waltz. Quickstep is also added to International Standard.
International Latin & American Rhythm: Get ready to shake and move! Considered to be more of the “oooo la la” dances, Latin and Rhythm feature dances with hip movement and South African/American influence. The fun is contagious and the music is impossible to sit still to. International Latin features ChaCha, Samba, Rumba, Paso Doble, and Jive as its 5 major dances. American Rhythm features ChaCha, Rumba, Bolero, East Coast Swing, and Mambo as its 5 major dances.
There are many many additional dances to learn and enjoy! This includes everything from Salsa, Country Western, Merengue, Bachata, West Coast Swing, Hustle, Disco, Lindy-Hop, and anything that you can dance with a partner!
