Celebrating everything dancing and music have to offer, specialty dances are patchworks of different times, cultures, and styles. Being rooted in well-established disciplines, specialty dances are known for their effervescence because they also consistently evolve, following current trends. Conformity has no place here. Specialty dances are fusions of African beats, Latino passion, tropical energy, and old-school ballroom dancing. They stand out to people who really want to dance – people that grab their partner and hit the dance floor as soon as they hear a good beat. There is no need to make arrangements, as long as there is room, a crowd, and the right music.
Because specialty dances offer more than traditional dancing, they require more of students. There can be many steps to learn, and reaching a point where a dancer can improvise freely takes effort. But once students become fully confident in their own abilities, they will be able to perform anywhere – the club, the house, the street, or on stage. When it comes to specialty dances, dancers set their own limits.
