I think dancing in general is still very commonplace. People still flock to nightclubs to dance to current music on packed dance floors. They choose to "freestyle" though, and not to partner dance... probably because it is simply easier to move to a song you like, then it is to take lessons and learn the various ballroom dances. DWTS has brought ballroom vocabulary to the main stream, so people know terms like "paso doble" and "foxtrot", but sadly, don't truly know what the dances look like as they are more of a show dance format on DWTS. Nevertheless, DWTS and recent ballroom focused movies resulted in peaking my interest and getting me to the studio, for which I am etenally grateful!
