WHAT IS SOCIAL DANCING? 

Social Dancing is a non-competitive form of Ballroom Dancing. Built on the premise of being able to socialize while dancing with someone, social dancers utilize all forms of partner dancing for practical use instead of performance. 

BALLROOM DANCING? 

Whether you refer to it as social, partner, or ballroom dancing - they are all one in the same.  It's all the classic ballroom dances like Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, and Swing, the latin dances like Rumba, Cha-Cha, Salsa, Mambo, and Merengue, and some more recent dances like Bachata and Zouk.  If you dance them with a partner, you can call them social, partner, or ballroom dances.
