What is Urban Ballroom Dancing?
Urban ballroom dancing is a smooth and graceful dance that combines Greystone, Hand Dance and Cha-Cha-Cha all in one dance. It is danced to R&B, jazz and neo-soul music. It is a partner dance where the leader and partner face and embrace one another. The male leads his partner in a series of steps or moves consisting of spins, turns and dips all the time maintaining the Cha-Cha-Cha beat to the music. Urban Ballroom also incorporates other dances, such as Salsa, Foxtrot, Rumba and Tango steps. The man’s job is to show the woman off as he gracefully executes one move to another across the dance floor.
