NTBDA aims to promote Ballroom Dancing for all in the Northern Territory.
Ballroom dancing covers a number of styles such as Modern, Old Time, Latin and New Vogue.The aim of all NTBDA dances is to give all dancers regular dates, times and places to practice and enjoy their dancing and to meet new people.
NTBDA also aims to showcase Ballroom and New Vogue Dancing to the broader community and to attract people to, or back to dancing. The dance programs will include some "Come & try" progressive dances of Jive, Samba, Barn Dances, Evening Three Step, etc where current dancers will try to pass on their skills to others. Other dance steps will include the Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, Modern Waltz, Slow and Quick Rythymn, etc. Sequence dances will include the Mayfair and Brecken Quickstep, Balmoral and Barclay Blues, Carousel, Sindy and Spindle Swing, Emmerdale and Alpha Waltz, Tangoette and Tango Serida plus others.
