Tradition, popular culture and enjoyment vocation are the sparks that have triggered the phenomenon of Ballroom dancing (Ballo Liscio). Just like a parallel universe which can be discovered by entering slowly, where behind every little detail you uncover meticulous care, the pursuit for perfection. Passion, dedication and emulation are the keys of this paradise that are handed down from generation to generation for the few truly passionate fans. Being a popular culture that was born in the private courtyards as an opportunity for recreational relief and gatherings it has now become a great spectacle of piazza, a media circus and an economical phenomenon. Associated industries that have grown include orchestras, record companies, promotional agencies and super-dance halls reminiscent of times past. Here, in this world you meet all kinds of people from musicians, who are constantly travelling between regional/village festivals and celebrations to dancers who train with athletic dedication in order to perform in popular national competitions, “kids” of the senior age who do not abandon the playful Romagnolo Spirit.
