Ballroom dancing is the name for a number of partner dances done in ballrooms. Most ballroom dancing is social but it may also be done competitively or dancers may work towards a series of recognised standards. The most important differences in style are between the modern or standard dances and the Latin dances. The modern dances are the waltz, quickstep, foxtrot, tango and Viennese waltz. The Latin dances are the cha-cha-cha, samba, rumba, paso doble and jive. However, there are also sequence dances where dancers move together in a pre-set pattern.
