  • Flotsam and Jetsam | All About That Bal

    Stumbled upon this jewel of a video with a little play on words. Made by YouTuber, Carson Morton, and his description is, "My own humble parody of "All About That Bass", this one for all my Balboa dancing friends."

  • Looking for dance instructors ASAP!

    Seeking to hire additional dance instructors. We teach Ballroom, Latin, & Swing dances to individuals and couples. We are looking for motivated, fun, creative and reliable people who are excited to start a career with a top studio.

  • Social versus Ballroom Dance

    Overall I prefer to consider what social and ballroom dance have in common, rather than emphasizing the differences. The two share the same historical roots, the same basic step vocabulary and similar partnering dynamics. In the entire World of Dance, social and ballroom are considered siblings.

  • Partnering Before and After the Vote

    Closed-couple partner dancing began in the 19th century, when the essential ballroom mindset, in both Europe and America, was selfless generosity, with an emphasis on enhancing the pleasure of your dance partners and the assembled company. Another important part of the original ballroom attitude was a flexible mindset and adapting to your partner.

  • The Three Worlds of Ballroom Dance

    All three forms are valid, each enjoyed by their adherents for good reasons. But it's helpful to know how and why they differ from each other. As you'll see in the third section below, it's sometimes essential to know the differences.

  • Social Dances of the Nineteenth Century

    Following the fall of the Ancien Regime in 1789, social dancing became more natural and egalitarian. Both clothing and dancing became less elaborate and restrictive as the rigid formalities of the Baroque ballroom eased.

  • The Evolution of English Ballroom Dance Style

    In England, partnered dancing is done in a wide variety of styles, both informal and formal, but the most visible and promoted form is what the English call "International Style" ballroom dance, which is based on competition ballroom (DanceSport) technique and styling. This page is a brief look at how and why this style evolved.

Dance Lessons in Redwood City, CA (94063)
I am 27 years old, I have been taking lessons for about 6 months at a place I'm not fully pleased with. I am mostly interested in Rhythm dance style. I want to get better and compete as a hobby. I am pretty natural at dance and learn pretty quickly. I don't know local dancers so I need help finding an instructor who is good and has competed and won competitions and who is willing to do pro/am competitions with me eventually when i'm ready.…
