El Paso Ballroom Dance Academy teaches all styles of competitive dances from beginners through advance. The American competitive style is considered more expressive and theatrical than the International competitive style. Competitive Styles Include: American Style Dancing, International Style Dancing, Country Western, Argentine Tango, Hustle, Salsa and West Coast Swing.
Partners are allowed to break away from each other, and there is room for interpretive, creative movement, while International competitive dancers strive to achieve interpretation of the mood of the dance through their movements with an emphasis on meticulous attention to technical details. International style competitors in the Modern (Ballroom) dances cannot break or alter the “perfect” hold of each other that they create at the beginning of the dance.
