About Ballroom Dance

Ballroom dancing includes several dance styles danced with a partner to a wide variety of music. Ballroom dancing is a traditional dance form that continues to evolve, as music and dance change. At OUT to Dance we teach the social, non-competitive style of ballroom dancing people love to play with at dance events, parties, weddings and clubs. Swing, salsa, merengue, lindy hop, west coast swing, and country two step are not usually considered ballroom dances in a social setting. However, waltz, foxtrot, American tango, cha cha, rumba, and “wedding dance” are often referred to as ballroom dances. We’re not fussy about categories like “ballroom dance” vs. other dances, because all these dance styles have so much in common with each other. When you’re social dancing, or partner dancing, you’re dancing in rhythm with another person to some great music, leading and following, and speaking a language of dance that you’re both familiar with, even if you’ve never met before!
