Standard dances consist out of Slow Waltz, Tango, Quickstep, and for higher levels Slow Foxtrot and the Viennese Waltz. The Latin dances consist out of Chacha, Rumba, Jive, and for higher levels, Samba and Paso doble.

This tournament is not only about competing. There is a multitude of fun activities planned, and two great parties.
