What you'll learn in this international class:Learn partnering, necessary techniques, applicable rhythms and patterns for international dancing.
The International Style of dance developed in Europe almost at the same time as the American Style, and was introduced to the U.S. in the 1960's. Originally labeled English Style, it quickly became the darling of the competitive world. On the social floor, initially, it took second place to the American Style. Over the years though, it developed a popularity equal to the American Style, danced socially and competitively in the U.S., Europe and Asia. The dances in this style are divided into two distinctly formulated categories: Standard which includes the Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Slow Foxtrot, and Quickstep; and Latin which includes the Cha Cha, Samba, Rumba, Paso Doble, and Jive.
Note: A dance partner is not required for this class.
