Standard is the name which is only a few years old, It refers to the Waltz Tango Foxtrot Quickstep and V. Waltz. I dont particularly like that name. I prefer to call it the International Style of Ballroom Dancing which it is. Heres the big But.Latin American is also the International Style of Ballroom Dancing. It seems they had to find a way of seperating one from the other. This all came about when Dancesport was founded which is not that long ago. Untill 1964 Latin American was not a part of British Ballroom Dancing. Anyway what was once called the English Style of Ballroom Dancing is now called the Standard Style. Latin American Style kept its original name.
