Ballroom dancing is one of the most romantic activities there is. Ballroom dances can be slow and sweet, or fast and flirtatious. You might be surprised to know that ballroom dances can also be very easy to learn! If you think learning how to ballroom dance is out of the realm of possibility for you, think again!

At Arthur Murray Dance Center, we have formulated different programs for any given individual based on their skill level. We have also compiled a list of the top four ballroom dances for beginners.

  • Paso Doble – The Paso Doble is the easiest ballroom dance to learn with its two basic steps. This dance has a Spanish flare to it, and the more theatrical you can be with the Paso Doble, the better.
  • The Waltz – The Waltz is a slow and smooth dance which allows partners to glide across the dance floor. The dance has four basic steps, and your posture is everything when it comes to the Waltz.
  • The Cha-Cha – The Cha-Cha has a Latin flare to it, and almost everyone is familiar with the “one, two, cha cha cha” phrase. The dance has five basic steps and the movements are all about the hip action.
  • The Lindy Hop – The Lindy Hop is generally regarded as a type of swing dance, and it has six basic steps to follow. The dance also keeps in time with the music, making it easier to follow along with the counts for each move.
