American rhythm dances
The American rhythm dances include Bolero, Cha Cha, East Coast Swing, Mambo and Samba.
At the Bronze or Social level the American rhythm dances fit well into the smaller social dance floors. A faster tempo may indicate shorter steps and Bronze level patterns.
At the Silver level the Patterns become more intricate, with larger movements and can, in the case of Samba traverse the competition floor.
