The European program is: the English (slow) waltz, tango, the Vienneze waltz, slow foxtrot and quickstep (fast foxtrot). The Latin American program is: samba, cha-cha-cha, rumba, paso doble and jive.
The most famous and romantic ballroom dancing is the Waltz. It appeared thanks to many dances of different nations of Europe. Today there are following varieties of the Waltz: the Vienneze waltz, the French waltz, the English waltz.
