The tango has its roots in Argentina, with the current version incorporating European, American, Hollywood, and competitive (dancesport) influences into the style and execution of the dance. Soon after the Argentine tango arrived in Europe, it started gaining popularity, especially in Paris. The Europeans liked the seductive music and the passionate dance, and thus, slowly their style and technique became entwined with the original version. In order to have a standardized format which would be taught in dance schools and used in competitions, the English codified their own version, which took on the name International style. This is the version used in international dancing competitions.

Viennese Waltz

The contemporary Viennese waltz is the original form of the waltz, and is a ballroom dance in the closed hold position. The waltz, which is alternately known as the English waltz and the slow waltz, is usually danced at about 90 beats per minute with three beats to the bar (the international standard of 30 measures per minute). In comparison, the Viennese Waltz is danced at about 180 beats (98-60 measures) a minute. An authentic Viennese waltz consists only of turns and change steps. In this dance, the couple frequently turns in a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction, interspersed with regular steps.

Slow Foxtrot

While there is ambiguity surrounding the exact origins of the Foxtrot, the name is attributed to its presumed creator, the vaudeville actor Harry Fox. In 1914, the dance caught the attention of the famous dancing couple Vernon and Irene Castle, who contributed to its popularity. However, it was Arthur Murray who was responsible for the standardized version that emerged a little later. The Foxtrot steadily gained popularity and peaked in the 1940s as the most popular fast dance. The slow version of the Foxtrot is now accepted in International style.

It consists of the ‘rise and fall’ action that includes a three-step sequence of ‘step, slide, and step’. The steps are counted as ‘Quick-quick-quick’ or ‘1-2-3’.
