In the olden days, ballroom dancing, or “social dancing”, was for the upper crust of society, leaving “folk dancing” for the lower classes.
Modern ballroom dancing is much more democratic, and the boundaries between once-polarized ballroom and folk dances become blurred.
However, even in times long gone many “ballroom” dances were simply elevated folk dances.
Today the popularity of ballroom, latin and other types of social dancing can be seen all over the world, and even on television, with shows such as “Dancing With The Stars” and “So You Think You Can Dance” and “So You Think You Can Dance: Next Generation” for kids. Competitions abound and the dancers are awe-inspiring.
