Latin American

These dance forms are couples dances which derived from Latin American countries. They are performed in competitions, similar to Ballroom dance, and in dance clubs and festivals. They are generally known for their fast pace and expressive rhythm.

Latin competition rules: At present the rules are being revamped and new rules will appear here for the 2015 season.

If organisers know of dates they would like to appear on the pages of DANCE, please contact Nick Miles on 07733 262387 by Monday 19th October 2015 to ensure that your dates appear in the next issue. 

 New Examiners

The Latin American and Modern Ballroom faculties are on the lookout for new examiners.

If you are interested in becoming an examiner of the ISTD either now or in the future and currently hold your Fellowship exam in Latin American, Modern Ballroom or ideally both then we would be interested to hear from you.

Please contact the Faculty Co-ordinator for Latin American and Modern Ballroom Mrs Joanne Blackshaw at Latin.Ballroom@istd.org for more information. The closing date for this year is 1st November 2015.

The ISTD celebrated its 110th anniversary in 2014
