American Style
 


There are many differences between International Style 
and American Style. These include differences in 
tempo of dance, hold and hip/legmovements. 
American Style is split into Two Styles of dance.
 
Smooth
 
The misconception is that American Smooth is solely 
one dance. This isn't the case. The equivalent to 
International Style Ballroom. Traditionally these dances 
are danced in full body contact as well as side by side 
positions. They can include lifts too.
 
Or
 
Rhythm

and International Latin Styles. The American Rumba 
is danced faster and the Cha Cha Cha danced slower. 
Swing is also danced slower than Jive.
