There are five Latin dances. Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, Samba, Paso Doble and Jive. The most popular are the Cha Cha Cha, Rumba and Jive. Each dance has its own character and requires different technique to perform well. Remember that every world champion was a beginner at one time and they are usually in their twenties, so it is not long to the top!
We hope that you join our groups and enjoy one of the most sociable sports to get both mentally and physically fit. It's never too late to start dancing.
