Foxtrot: This is a traditional dance done to the standard styles of music. Perfect for big band events like Mardi Gras balls and other elegant functions. Examples.. Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Michael Buble.
Waltz: Although this dance is done at a slow tempo it can also be done much quicker ( this is known as Viennese Waltz, alot of rock music is at this faster tempo. Examples..Daughtry, Avril Lavigne, Evanescence as well as orchestra music ) The slow style is the more popular way taught. Examples..Nat King Cole, Johnny Mathis, Lionel Richie, Norah Jones.
Tango: This is done not only as a ballroom dance but as a social style called Argentine Tango. Much of the same music could be used for both although there is quite a difference in style. Examples.. Julio Iglesias, Gotan Project, Cirque Du Soleil.
Rumba: Considered the basic of all the latin dances, the tempo has a huge range in which it can be danced. Because of this, Rumba has plenty of music to choose from. Examples..Marc Anthony, Diana Krall, Bee Gees, Norah Jones, Sade.
Cha Cha: Fun and fast, this dance is usually a favorite. The versatility of this dance means that you have many options in music. Examples..Santana, Bette Midler,Christina Aguilera, Janet Jackson, Buena Vista Social Club.
Swing: The popularity of this dance has meant that it has developed into many different styles. East Coast Swing is danced as several different rhythms including single
(Jitterbug, which is used for faster music..Examples..Andrew Sisters, Louis Prima, Brian Setzer Orchestra ). East Coast can also been done in triple which makes it perfect for medium tempos. Examples..Blues Brothers, Gwen Stefani, Elvis, Billy Joel. West Coast Swing is a smoother style often danced in a more low key way making it one of the most popular styles taught in this area. Ranging from Blues, Old School, R&B to Hip Hop, examples are endless. ( Al Green, Aretha Franklin, Babyface, Chris Brown, John Legend, Jordin Sparks, Lady GaGa, Ne-Yo )
