New Weekly: Ballroom Dancing

This was suggested by Ketevank. She’ll be rewarded for it and also help me choose winners.

Let’s take a break from all the seriousness and dance our troubles away.

Modern ballroom dancing is comprised of five dance styles: Foxtrot, Viennese Waltz, Modern Waltz, Tango and Quickstep.

Image

Waltz
This is the most commonly thought-of dance when someone mentions ballroom dancing. It is 28 bars per minute, done in 3/4 time, and it can be fairly romantic.

Tango
Ballroom tango is different when compared with Argentine tango. It has a 2/4 time signature, and it is 32 bars per minute. While ballroom tango can certainly be romantic, sensual might be a better word to describe this popular dance.

Foxtrot
This is an all-American dance set to jazz music and can be fast or slow depending on the band.

Quickstep
This dance is inspired by the foxtrot, but it takes on a much quicker tempo, hence the name.

Viennese Waltz
As soon as the 3/4 time music starts, the ballroom studio will become ablaze with the quick and passionate flow of this ‘old school’ waltz.

International Latin Samba
A bouncy dance that is partnered for competitions, but as the national dance of Brazil, it is solo.

Cha-Cha
This flirtatious dance can be thought of as a slower mamba. Much hip movement will be involved.

Rumba
Many people consider the rumba to be the most passionate and romantic dance on this list. It is incredibly complex and involves many different hip movements.

Jive
A spicy swing dance set to big band music in which the man leads and the women encourage more men to ask them to dance.

Paso Doble
The man dances as if he was the bullfighter, and the woman as if she was bullfighter's cape.

Create your Ballroom Dancing outfit, fit for one of these dances.

Rewards:
1st – $50 000
2nd – $ 30 000
3rd – $ 20 000

Things I'll look at when choosing winners:
1. Did you dress as a ballroom dancer?
2. Were you creative?
