There are approximately 4,500 dance studios in the country which employ about 50,000 people. For such a specialty, the dance studio industry is booming! Second, ballroom dancing has a long and esteemed history. The term “ballroom dancing” is derived from the Latin word ballare, which means “to dance.” As early as the 1600s, ballroom dancing gained popularity (as well as a set of rules) with the masses. In fact, Louis XIV founded the Academie Royale de Danse in 1661, the first of its kind in the West. It was founded in order to “restore the art of dancing to its original perfection and to improve it as much as possible” and in doing so, created and codified proper courtly dancing. Needless to say, there is no shortage of expertise on ballroom dancing!
