Ballet ([’bælei] — балет). Ballet began in Italy and France during the Renaissance ([rineis(ə)ns] — епоха Відродження у світовій культурі). It is still a very popular art form in Western culture.
Folk ([fəvk] — народний) dance.
Folk dance is usually traditional and the members of a nation perform it, for example, the Ukrainian Hopak or Polka.
Folk dances are usually group dances.
Ballroom (['bɔ:lru:m] — бальний) dances. Ballroom dancing was a formal dance in a large room. It became popular in Europe and North America. Central European folk dances, such as the waltz ([wɔ:l(t)s] — вальс) and polka, changed and became the most popular examples of ballroom dances.
Before the First World War, new ballroom dances came to Europe from American continents, for example, FoxTrot, Rumba, Cha-Cha. The Argentine Tango became internationally popular by Carlos Gardeł, his songs and films. At present, there are two types of ballroom dances: Standard (waltz, tango, quickstep, foxtrot and Vienna waltz) and Latino-American (cha- cha, samba, rumba, jive and pasodoble).
Popular/Modern dance. Popular (social or modern) dances often came from folk dances. They are easy and couples dance them. But they are usually popular for only a short time. Two centuries ago social dances took place only in palaces or homes of rich people. Later they became more popular and spread among ordinary people.
