What is Round Dancing: (also known as Choreographed Ballroom Dance)?
"Round dancing is a form of ballroom dance
since we learn and practice many rhythms just like ballroom dancing. But
it also is different because we have cuers who tell us the name of each
step so we don't have to memorize a routine."
