Hi.  Welcome to the Choreographed Ballroom Dance Learning Library.  If you’re a current student looking for a list of dance videos, click on the “Catalog” tab above, or go straight to the youtube channel.  Otherwise…

New to Choreographed Ballroom Dance?  Curious what it is?  You can find a video explanation here.  Or read on…

Choreographed (or Cued) Ballroom Dance is ballroom dancing with a twist – the dances are pre-choreographed and a “cuer” announces the steps as the dance proceeds.  Freed from memorized sequences and the complexities of leading and following, the dancers can focus on the steps and the rhythm while enjoying professional choreography. It really is the quickest, easiest way  to learn and enjoy ballroom dancing.

But it’s not just for beginners. Once you’ve experienced professional choreography, you’ll never want to go back to doing the same old boring figures, over and over, ever again.  The dance figures are grouped into “Phases”, and once you learn a particular phase, you’ll have access to thousands of pre-choreographed dances written for that phase.

For couples, Choreographed Ballroom has another big plus.  With less need to master the intricacies of leading and following, there’s no pressure to swap partners!  You can dance with your honey – all night long!

And Choreographed Ballroom has a relaxed, fun atmosphere.  There are no performances, no competitions, and no trophy cases.  Just people dancing for fun.  It’s light-hearted.  It’s relaxed, it’s playful.  The way dancing should be.

Interested?  Poke around on the youtube channel for a sense of what we do.  And don’t let those big numbers next to the “Phase” scare you – most of the dances on the channel are beginner dances- the ones titled in green.  The ones titled in blue are second-level (usually second-year) dances.  Those in tan are trickier second- or easy third-level dances.  The ones in orange or red are for more experienced dancers.  They’re included to give you an idea of just how much fun you can have with professional choreography!
