Old Time dancing is couples dancing, and is a popular form of Ballroom dancing. The name ‘Old Time’ can be misleading, as many of the popular dances have been arranged over more recent years. Every couple on the floor does the same steps at the same time, and many of the dances have been arranged to special music and so have their own tune. Each dance is of a 16 (or occasionally 32) bar sequence. The basis of Old Time is ballet technique combined with Ballroom and Latin.
