Ballroom Dance is a dainty dance form performed by partners or couples. It involves doing rhythmic movements and intricate dance techniques in a patterned sequence. There are 2 types of Ballroom Dance: Smooth-style Ballroom Dancing and Rhythm-style Ballroom Dancing.
In Smooth-style Ballroom Dancing, the pattern of the movements performed goes in a counter-clockwise motion. On the other hand, Rhythm-style Ballroom Dancing involves doing snappy but sexy movements in a particular dance floor area.
