STYLES OF BALLROOM DANCING: 

Ballroom dance is one of the elegant and elite forms of dancing. The basic requirement for a dance to fall into the category of ballroom dancing is that it needs two people as partners to dance. The dances that fall under the umbrella of ballroom dancing have undergone constant change with additions and subtractions to the list over time. The list that exists now only pertains to the current time. 

There are currently two lists referred to when people talk of ballroom dances. One is the International Style, that is further divided into International Standard and International Latin. In the US, the American Style consisting of American Smooth and American Rhythm, is widely accepted.
