What is the most popular partner dance style in the world right now? How about in the US? How about in your country of origin? I've heard a couple of non-dancers recently say that salsa is the most popular dance style, but I'm not sure where that comes from, since those individuals don't actually know how to dance with a partner. Based on my experience I would say that waltz is the most popular dance style, although I don't really believe it is true. Most people that I interact with know how to waltz, at least a little, because I mostly interact with ballroom people. Swing dancers would likely say that swing is very common, and salsa dancers would likely say that salsa is very common. If you see the dance world from a broad perspective, what do you think is the most common (or most popular) partner dance right now? Why do you think that style is more common?
