The Lindy picked up where the Charleston left off. It had "swing-outs," "break-aways" and "shine steps." With the birth of Swing music in the mid 1930's the Lindy climbed the social ladder. The dance craze swept the nation, and depending on where you lived, it was called the Jitterbug, the Lindy or the Swing. See more dances below.

Salsa is the spanish word for "sauce" denoting a spicy or hot flavor. And this dance is hot! Salsa can be danced to a variety of Afro-Latin rhythms, and features simple steps and lots of hip action (or "Cuban Motion"). Salsa is the national dance of Puerto Rico. Many of this dance's patterns are closely related to those of the Mambo.
The Waltz began in 17th century southern Germany. The popularity of the Waltz grew with the music of famous composer Johann Strauss and eventually blossomed in the 20th century. It is the most popular wedding dance and is danced all over the world. The grace and elegance of the Waltz can and should be enjoyed by all.
The Tango began in the West Indies and found it's way to Argentina where it was stylized by the Gauchos to it's present form. It became the romantic rage in 1921, after the silent screen star Rudolph Valentino brought the dance to millions in "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse." Today it is considered the "Dancer's Dance" and is a favorite of all who learn it.
Called the "Dance of Romance", the Rumba began the Cuban and Latin American inspired dance crazes in the U.S. Danced to music inspired by African rhythms and Spanish melodies, the Americanized Rumba was the basis for the Mambo and Cha Cha. The sentuous and flirtatious rhythms of the Rumba make it a favorite of social and Ballroom dancers alike.
