Dance ChristchurchLatin Dancing, what is it?

Latin dances defined: The term 'Latin dances' in the context of social and ballroom dances may be used in two meanings. The public tend to get these mixed up, but they are very different style dances and completly different histories. You can see the differnce in the movements.
At 'Salsa Latina' we teach Modern Street Style Latin dancing (#1)

#1 Street Latin Dancing
The first meaning is to denote dances originated in Latin American & Spanish speaking origins. Typically these are Salsa, Cha Cha, Rumba, Samba, Axé, New York Mambo, Argentine Tango, Merengue, Forro, Lambada, Kizomba, Zouk, Bachata, Cumbia, Son etc. Our dance instructors teach these styles, which are popular in Modern Salsa night clubs world wide, thye are true lead and follow street freestyle dance that is social. Freesytle meaning "not choreograhed" as the leader creates or uses moves & turn patterns on the go and both leader & follower relate to the music differently for each dance and you can dance with anyone during a social night. Street Latin dance can also be taken into the competition and performances through choregograhed routines as well. Creativity in these dances is growing at a huge rate because its not governed by a body or organisation in comparision to Latin Ballroom. Street Latin styles tend to be more grounded and flowing and the hip & body movement is very different to Ballroom style.
Note: Brazilian Samba No Pe and Rumba in their traditional form are not Partner dances.

#2 Latin Ballroom Dancing
The second, a more formal usage, is the name of a category of International style ballroom dances, also called Latin American dances, International Latin or Dance Sport which was a developed style created in England and is governed by organisations such as WDC & WDSF etc. Many of the dance styles are inspired interpretations of Street style Latin dances brought into the Ballroom scene to spice up the Ballroom scene, they use the same or similar names such as Cha Cha, Rhumba, Salsa, Tango, etc. Latin Ballroom styles mainly consists of the following five dances: Cha cha cha, Rhumba, Samba, Paso Doble, Jive. Notice that not all Ballroom dances are of Latin American origin 'inspiration', not the orginal dance. This style of Latin dancing is not a true social dance in the lead and follow sense, couples tend to stick together for compeitiions and not dance socially like Street Styles, these are typically competition and performance orientated dances only. The name "Dance Sport" was introduced when the orginisation tried to get this labeled as a sport to enter into the olympic games.
The style usually looks very upright, sharp movements. The hip & body movement is also different to street style Latin dancing.
