Already compete in ballroom competitions? Or do you dance ballroom and would like to compete with us? You already know 4 of the dances: Waltz, Cha Cha, East Coast Swing and West Coast Swing. These are just danced to country music instead of ballroom music. There are 4 dances which are completely different: Triple Two Step, Two Step, Night Club 2 Step and Polka.
