Ballroom dancing criteria

Formal social dancing in couples, popular as a recreation and also as a competitive activity. The ballroom dance repertoire includes dances developed from old folk dances such as the waltz, Latin American dances such as the tango, rumba, and cha-cha, and dances of 20th-century origin such as the foxtrot and quickstep.

Ballroom dance may refer, at its widest definition, to almost any type of partner dancing. The styles, while differing in technique, rhythm and costumes, are judged on their core elements of ballroom dancing such as control and cohesiveness.

In competition ballroom, dancers are judged by diverse criteria such as poise, the hold or frame, posture, musicality and expression, timing, body alignment and shape, floor craft, foot and leg action, and presentation.
