I have wondered about this for sometime but I haven't come across any good answers to this despite much googling, so I'm hoping to get the opinions of fellow DF'ers. What is the accepted practice with regard to the capitalization of the words "ballroom" and "latin"? I know that in general the word "latin" should be capitalized as "Latin" but what about ballroom? It seems strange to write "I enjoy ballroom and Latin dancing." Or is there really nothing strange about this? I want to write "I enjoy Ballroom and Latin dancing" so that there is a kind of parallel structure to the expression (i.e., both words, Ballroom and Latin, capitalized). However, I get the impression that, at least according to (perhaps non-dancing) grammarians, that the word ballroom should not be capitalized. Thoughts?
