Cha-Cha: A sassy and energetic dance, Cha-Cha is usually danced to Latin pop or authentic Latin songs. It evolved from Mambo and Rumba dances and had strong Cuban and African rhythms. This dance is also quite flirtatious, which is why you need one-of-a-kind custom latin dance dress when performing the Cha-Cha.

Rumba: A romantic Latin dance, the Rumba is characterized by a sensual interplay between the two partners. Additionally, romantic love songs are used in this particular Latin dance along with direct and strong walks while dancing.

Samba: Often challenging to learn, the Samba Latin dance originates from Brazil and consists of many turns and jumps. It is also quite fast and requires well-fitting custom made Latin competition dresses.

Paso Doble: This dance is derived from the Spanish phrase “two-step,” and it is an interesting, match-like event with surprisingly less hip action for a Latin dance.

Jive: An inhibited and lively Jitterbug dance variation, the Jive dance originated from African Americans during the 1940s. It derives most of its movements from swing, rock n’ roll and lindy hop among others.
