Our dance studio instructors are carefully selected to help you achieve your goals in a fun, friendly environment. Call us today if you are ready to get started!

Types of Ballroom Dance Classes

Many people think of couples dancing as ballroom dancing. While the lines have been blurred a bit in modern times, typical ballroom dancing is more selective in the actual dances it incorporates. Most often, the term ballroom dancing refers to the 10 dances incorporated within the Standard Ballroom set. This includes the Slow Waltz and Viennese waltz, as well as the Tango, Foxtrot, Quickstep, Samba, Cha-Cha, Rumba, Paso doble, and Jive.

Many American dance studios also incorporate the East Coast Swing, Bolero, and Mambo. Each type of dance is set apart by the amount of bars per minute and the signature dance movements of the style. For instance, the Tango is danced 31–33 bars per minute in 4/4 time, while the Samba is 50–52 bars per minute in 2/4 time.

At Arthur Murray Dance Studio, we specialize in teaching the East Coast Swing, Lindy Hop, West Coast Swing, and Foxtrot, as well as three types of waltzes. The waltzes featured in our ballroom dancing classes are the Slow Waltz, Viennese Waltz, and Country Western Waltz. These dances are great basics to perform at your wedding and can also serve as a base for more competitive dancers, or those who want to take their ballroom dance classes to the next level.
