Not quite au fait with you Latin lingo or Tango terminology? Clare gives us the lowdown…
Jive is a dance and is the faster version of the swing. A lot of kicks are used in jive with a bouncy type movement using the balls of the feet a lot.
The dance of luuuurve… the rumba is the most sensual and romantic of the Latin dances. If you’re learning this, take along an appropriate dance partner!
Tango music and its associated dance forms originated in Argentina and Uruguay. It’s a passionate dance and staccato in style, with definite, sharp movement and lots of drama. Think of the mesmerising and storytelling tango danced in Moulin Rouge to The Police song Roxanne mixed with the tango classic Tanguera.
From the old German word ‘walzen’ – to roll, turn, or to glide – the waltz is a smooth and elegant dance where partners move as one. Professional waltz couples wear flowing ball gowns for the women, and tails for the men.
The Samba originated in Brazil where it is danced as a party dance during the street festivals and celebrations. The festive style and fun mood of the dance make it one you can use to impress on any dancefloor.
The Quickstep evolved in the 1920s from a combination of dances including the Foxtrot, Charleston, Peabody, and One Step. It should be a light, bright dance with fast footwork. A good quickstep involves a lot of work on the balls of the feet and plenty of spring.
The Paso is based on the bullfight, the man representing the bullfighter, ‘Torero’, and the lady the red cape or ‘cappa’. It’s also the dance where John Sergeant dragged his partner along the floor like a sack of spuds, but don’t let that put you off.
