Ballroom dance is the harmonious interaction of two dancers. Either a previously rehearsed choreography is danced together or spontaneously danced, with one person taking the lead and the other the "follow". As a rule for Ballroom dance, the gentleman leads while the lady is led. The dances belonging to Ballroom dance are the Latin dances (Cha-Cha-Cha, Samba, Rumba, Jive, Paso Doble), the standard dances (Viennese Waltz, Slow Waltz, Quickstep, Tango, Slowfox), most swing dances (Lindy Hop, Balboa , Shag, Boogie-Woogie, West Coast Swing) as well as Discofox, Foxtrott, Rock'n'Roll, Tango Argentino, and Salsa.
