Samba is certainly one of the hottest ballroom dances around. Characterized by its steady bounce and playful hip movements this dance is always fun. The shifting of weight from one foot to the other is known as the Samba bounce.

Samba originated in Brazil, although in ballrooms it's nothing like the original. In Brazil, it is a solo dance, performed at street festivals and carnivals. Ballroom Samba, on the other hand, is a partner dance that has little in common with the original form.

The ballroom Samba is danced to music in 2/4 time, with 3 steps per measure. In the following video, Louis and irina will show you the basics of Samba and explain the timing of the dance, which is essential for you to understand.
