    I will be studying abroad spring semester in Quito, Ecuador. I'm aware that there's lots of salsa in Ecuador, and I've already found contact info for a few salsa schools, but is there ballroom dance in South America? How will I find places that teach ballroom (I was thinking of emailing the salsa schools and asking them, but I don't want to come off as rude)

    Also, if anyone wants to teach me some ballroom words ("el ballroom"?) in Spanish, that would be appreciated.

    "Bailes de salon" would be the translation to Ballroom dances. Now if you refer to the ballroom would be el "salon de baile".
    I would not ask the salsa schools, I would try to do a few searches in the internet or ballroom websites.

    Thanks for the advice--now that I know how to say "ballroom dancing" in Spanish, I'm sure that will be helpful for looking for schools!
