The New Vogue dance style is an Australian form of sequence dancing that originated in the 1930s.
Since then it has become an important part in the Australian ballroom scene, holding as much importance in social and competition dancing as Latin or International Standard dances.
There are a large number of New Vogue dances, although only a handful are common.
All New Vogue dances are based on a sequence of dance steps which are continually repeated, usually until the music ends.
Due to the nature of the dances they are much easier to pick up by beginners than, say, Latin dances (which have numerous types of steps that are combined into custom routines) and as such, beginner dancers are less likely to feel overwhelmed when learning them and can perform the dances to a respectable level within a short time of learning.
New Vogue dances can be danced at different levels, with higher levels requiring more precise steps and the addition of arm and torso movements, in a nutshell making the dances easy to pick up but hard to master.
New Vogue Dances are based on one of several sub categories, including Viennese Waltz Rhythm, Slow Foxtrot Rhythm, March Rhythm and Tango Rhythm.
Out of the many New Vogue Dances, twenty-three are recognised by Dancesport Australia for use in DanceSport competitions.
Fifteen of these New Vogue Dances can be performed at Dancesport Championship Competitions.
These, and their rhythms, are listed below.

These dances vary in length and difficulty and as such the harder dances are performed at higher levels.
