What is Round Dancing?

The Intermediate & above levels (Phase IV-VI) of Round Dancing are essentially Ballroom Dancing to choreographed routines. The figures or patterns, in each routine, are called out just before the dancer is to execute them by a round dance cuer. The dancers progress around the floor in unison. At the lower levels (Phase II-III), Round Dancing is similar, though not the same, to Country Western mainly concentrating on two rhythms, two step & waltz.


Round Dances have been choreographed to a wide variety of ballroom and modern music in both the International & American ballroom syles. A few of the rhythms include: waltz, Viennese waltz, foxtrot, quickstep, international tango, American tango, argentine tango, rumba, bolero, cha, jive, swing, jitterbug, west coast swing, disco, samba, paso doble, mambo, meringue, slow two step (aka Nightclub two step)...
