Ballroom dancing consists of several styles: the "International Style" and the “American Style". The International Style includes the "Latin" and "Standard" divisions while the American Style includes "Rhythm" and "Smooth". Each program consists of five different dances, besides American Smooth which consists of only four, and is distinguished by its own technique, music and character. However, no matter the diversity between the styles, all of the programs have much in common.

The Male-Female Connection

Whichever style you begin to learn, you will immediately notice that in dance, connection between partners is of particular importance. The role of the “leader” is played by the man, his task being to create comfortable conditions for the couple and to lead his lady in the right direction to the right timing. Thus, the man discovers himself from the courageous side of being the leader. The task of the lady, on the other hand, is to be feminine, to bewitch everyone's attention to herself as well as to "follow" the signals that the man sends to her through his leading. In addition to movement and technique, dancers learn to trust, support and count on each other.


Age in dancing is not important. Ballroom dancing is a unique combination of art and sport, and is absolutely FOR EVERYONE. From children ages 3-4, who need to direct their energy in the most positive and productive way, to people who are searching for a new breath in life, dance is the key.
