Smooth SilhouetteSmooth Dances – These are partnership dances that move around the dance floor in time with the music – each dance with its own personality and characteristic. From the elegant flow of the Waltz to the staccato movements of the Tango, Smooth dances are designed to move you around the dance floor. There are two categories of Smooth dances; American and International. The American dances which move around the room are called “Smooth” dances, while the International version is called “Standard” dances.
