International or Imperial Style is the original ballroom style our standard dances are Waltz, Tango Foxtrot, Viennese waltz & Quick Step. Standard differed from American Smooth in that we dance exclusively in closed position and rely more heavily on lead/ follow and connection. The structure & discipline associated with standard will allow you to accelerate more quickly in all of your dance with your new found understanding of the importance of frame & connection to your partner and the dance floor.
