Interest in ballroom dancing has never been hotter.

In the U.S and U.K., the rise in temperature is the result of such TV hits as "Dancing with the Stars", and "Strictly Come Dancing" which have helped introduce ballroom dancing to a whole new generation.

The history of ballroom dancing dates back to the Renaissance when the royal courts hosted formal dances to set them apart from folk dance festivals enjoyed by mere commoners.

Since then, genteel and graceful dances such as the waltz and the minuet have been joined by more American-style swing (popularized by the famous dancing duo Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers in the 20th century). More recently Latin ballroom dancing with driving rhythms and near-acrobatic moves also continue to thrill modern audiences.

Around the Web, you can virtually rumba, Argentine tango, cha-cha, salsa, or waltz the night away with help from these top sites with a wealth of resources for the beginner or the professional.
