Re: American Style??? Posted by Melissa 12/28/2005 11:57:00 AM
You are right. Some dances are both Internation and American style. This is how they are listed:
American Smooth: Waltz Fox Trot Tango Vienneze Waltz
International Standard: Waltz Fox Trot Tango Viewnneze Waltz Quickstep
International Latin: Cha Cha Samba Rhumba Pasa Doble Jive
American Rythym: Cha Cha Mambo Swing Bolero
International Standard keeps couples in closed position at all times. Whereas American Smooth...Couples can seperate and dance side by side, underarm turns, and grapevines. I thought this might help people, other than Jerry, tell the difference.
