Defining Dance – International Standard

International Standard

International Standard dances include Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Foxtrot and Quickstep. This is a classic style of dancing where couples remain in ‘closed hold’ (man’s raised left hand holds woman’s right hand; man’s right hand on woman’s left shoulder blade, bodies touching). The style is characterized by sweeping movement, emotions, body flight, control and precision. International Standard is danced in elegant attire –men frequently wear tail suits or similar evening attire while the ladies wear long full skirts or ball gowns.
