Rumba: The Rumba is a ballroom dance of Cuban origin in ²/₄ or ⁴/₄ time with a basic pattern of step-close-step and marked by a delayed transfer of weight and pronounced hip movements.
The Waltz: The waltz is a smooth, progressive ballroom and folk dance, normally in triple time, performed primarily in closed position.
The Foxtrot: The foxtrot is a smooth, progressive dance characterized by long, continuous flowing movements across the dance floor. It is danced to big band (usually vocal) music. The dance is similar in its look to waltz, although the rhythm is in a 4 4 time signature instead of 3 4. Developed in the 1910s, the foxtrot reached its height of popularity in the 1930s, and remains practiced today.
The Charleston: a fast rhythmic dance of the 1920s, characterized by kicking and by twisting of the legs from the knee down
