"Ballroom dance" refers to traditional partnered dance forms that are done by a couple, often in the embrace of closed dance position ("ballroom dance position"). These include waltz, swing, tango and salsa.

Social/ballroom dance forms are important. The earliest dance forms ever described in detail (in the 15th century) were partnered social dances. Many of today's performative dance forms, including ballet and jazz dance, evolved from social dance forms that came first.

The three worlds of ballroom dance share the same historical roots, similar step vocabulary and music, so the three forms are considered siblings, related by birth. Yes, siblings are known to fight, but they can also be mutually supportive.

Types of Ballroom Dance: Tango Dance, Jive Dance, Swing Dance, Lindy Hop Dance, Waltz Dance, Rumba/Samba Dance, Cha Cha Cha Dance.
