Ballroom Dancing: The Basic Steps and the Basics

Some of the most common ballroom dance steps include Cha-Cha, Foxtrot, Waltz and Swing Out of all these,, the Cha-Cha is probably the most popular dance for beginners. People like the Cha-Cha because it has a lot of footwork, and even if you just know the basic steps, you can still dance the cha-cha and have it look decent. The cha-cha is also a unique dance because both partners will do all of their movements simultaneously. This makes it a lot easier to learn and also makes it easier to follow. The next most popular dance is the Foxtrot. The Foxtrot is easy to learn and the perfect dance for beginners. A lot of times people can start dancing the Foxtrot after their first lesson. The most important thing for you to know when you are dancing is to maintain a slow-slow-quick-quick-slow pattern as you move with your partner across the dance floor. Waltz is the third most popular ballroom dancing people learn. False is a little bit more tricky than Foxtrot or Cha-Cha simply because you’d only have to count by trees, but you also have to change your elevation as you are moving across the dance floor. Of course after you have learned how to do the cha-cha and the foxtrot, learning the basic steps of the waltz are not that difficult. The fourth most popular dance step is swing. There are several variations including West Coast Swing, Lindy hop, and Jive. The advantage of dancing Swing is it is a fast type of dance that can be very fun to do with a partner.What’s 1 more click? Your boss isn’t watching… I could give Bruno a run for his money.
