American Style Dancing
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.
The misconception is that American Smooth is solely

are danced in full body contact as well as side by side
positions. They can include lifts too.

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