Known for its sensual hip action and sexy flair, Latin American dance is gaining popularity on dance floors everywhere. Latin dances hail from several different countries in South and Central America, and most have influences that range far beyond this region. Latin American dance consists of the following five dances: Cha-Cha, Rumba, Samba, Paso Doble and Jive. These dances are now performed all over the world as Latin-American dances in international DanceSport competitions, as well as being danced socially.

As part of our Latin dance class, students will get the chance to learn the five dances; the Cha-Cha with its infectious Cuban beat; the Rumba with its slow, sultry sexy moves; the Samba with its fun, Brazilian carnival feeling; the Paso Doble depicting the spirit of the bull-fight (the man being the matador and the lady being the cape); and the Jive with its roots in Lindy Hop and Swing – all make Latin American dancing an exciting and exuberant experience.

Flamboyant, vibrant and playful, the Cha-Cha is a Cuban-born dance and an offshoot of the Mambo. It is one of the most popular of the Latin dances with an easy to understand rhythm. After the basic movement of stepping forward or backward and shifting weight between feet, the Cha-Cha adds a quick set of three steps. This gives the dance its name since many dancers count out these steps as "cha cha cha".

The Rumba has its roots in Cuba and is also known as the "dance of love." It is danced to romantic Latin love songs and it is fun and easy to learn. Rumba emphasizes on slow, romantic steps with a focus on hip movements.

Samba is Brazilian in origin and one of the most well known Latin dances especially for its role in Carnival events, where individual dancers perform. Often difficult to master, the Samba is lively consisting of many jumps, turns and an extremely fast dance.

Meaning "two step" in Spanish, Pasa Doble is a traditional couple dance from Spain with a march-like character which tells a bullfighting story whereby the man being the matador and the lady being the cape. It is proud-looking with strong stance and firmer with full control than the other four Latin dances.
