Tel: 707.761.5214    Hours: Monday-Thursday 6-10pm and by appointment

Time Signature:   2/4 timing
Tempo:  Between 120-128 BPM for American and 128 BPM for International. 
Music Style:   Has a strong, driving beat, as if the music was marching.  In most songs, you will hear the accordion, piano, violin and other string instruments.  Very orchestral sounding.

Character:  Long, stalking, sneaking and staccato strides that travel around the ballroom.  It is danced with great passion and power, and a sense of drama.  Elements of contra-body movement and continuity are also important.  Sharp head movements called ticks are typical.

Where you can use it:  Typically only at a ballroom.
