Learn to Dance the Rhythm/Latin
International Latin hip action is achieved after stepping onto a "straight leg," whereas in American Rhythm hip action is achieved via Cuban motion i.e. by flexing the knee after taking a step.
Professional International ballroom competitions use International style dancing (including the US), while ballroom performances in North America use American ballroom style dancing. The popular television series, Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance, use American styles for their ballroom dancing. Be assured that Arthur Murray New Mexico in Albuquerque and Rio Rancho will help you meet your latin dance goals!
