(music)

voice one:

welcome to this is america in voa special english. i'm barbara klein.

voice two:

and i'm bob doughty. this week, we take you out on the dance floor for a report on ballroom dancing.

(music)

voice one:

the two dancers step slowly at first, then move into faster rhythms. soon their feet fly across the wooden dance floor. their bodies move apart, and then close together. they look into each other's eyes.

the woman wears a long, shining gold dress. or it might be a dress that leaves little to the imagination. the man wears a black tuxedo over a white shirt. he raises the woman off the floor and spins her over his head. she lands on her feet and slides back into his arms.

voice two:

for some people, this kind of dancing is a sport. the best of them take part in high-level competitions. some perform at the olympics, though they cannot yet compete for medals.

but for most people, ballroom dancing is just for fun. either as a sport or a social activity, this traditional kind of dance has captured the american imagination in new ways in recent years. people of all ages are trying it, especially young people. they learn the steps, then add their own.
