Towson Programs - Towson Dance Studio

Types of Dances

Ballroom dancing is a parter dance where the participants enjoy each other’s company on the dance floor, moving together to rhythmic, syncopated music, the man leading and the lady following, while in the midst of other couples also on the floor all at the same time. Some of the dances follow a “line of dance”, others remain in one spot.
The key elements that all ballroom dances share are:

  • Music – a distinctive type of popular music with clearly recognizable beats, rhythm, and melodic phrasing.
  • The character of each dance – the specific types of movement as responses to the unique feel of each type of dance rhythm, that the man and lady can both sympathetically respond to, whether it is Tango, Foxtrot, Swing, or any of the others.
  • The hold (what the Argentineans call “the embrace”) – the specific way the man holds his partner to give her the best possible lead, and the way she accepts this “embrace” so as to allow her to follow.
  • Balance – the use of good posture and poise along with the use of feet and legs that keeps the dancer moving from foot to foot in the most rhythmic, musical, and relaxed way.
