What dance should I learn first?
Since people have different “tastes” in music, maybe start with what you like. And if you like it all you’ll be a “Ballroom Eclectic” and learn some of everything!
The easiest and most used “Ballroom social dances” to start with are: Foxtrot, Waltz, Rumba, Cha Cha, East Coast Swing, and Nightclub Two Step… For more information about each style of dance, check out Dance Descriptions.
