Latin dances are the most energetic styles in a dance competition. They are full of life and rhythm, with quick moves and spectacular pirouettes. Distinguished from the elegant slow dances, these dances are in turn divided into several standardized styles: rumba, cha-cha-cha, samba, paso doble, jive, mambo, samba. Rumba is the slowest of these dances and originates in Cuba. Also of Cuban origin is the Cha-cha-cha, which can also be danced on modern Latin-American music. Pasodoble was inspired by the marches that accompany the corrida (bullfighting) and was perfected in south of France. The jive, or the swing, is connected to the heydays of jazz and has a joyous tone, with shakes of the hips and raising knees. The samba is the typical Brazilian dance, with sensual moves of the hips which can be seen during the Rio carnival, where dance schools compete.
