Cha Cha Cha Dance Continued Usage

Is there another type of Ballroom dancing?

Boat loads more. In ballroom there's two main disciplines; American and International.

American Ballroom has two distinct catagories, smooth and rhythm.

The American Smooth dances are; Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot and Viennese Waltz.

American Rhythm dances are: Cha Cha, Rumba, East Coast Swing, Bolero and Mambo

International Ballroom has Standard (comparable to American Smooth) that includes Slow Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz and Quickstep. They also have Latin (similar to American Rhythm) that includes Cha Cha, Samba, Rumba, Paso Doble and Jive.

The dances that have the same name generally do use the same music, but are quite different from each other.

Aside from all this there's country western dances that include a Country Polka, Waltz, Cha Cha, Two Step, and West Coast Swing. There are other popular Latin dances such as Merengue, Cumbia, Bachata and salsa. There are tons of swing varients, Single and Double Swing, Shag, Lindy Hop and Balboa. There's Hand Dancing, many types of Hustle, Argentine Tango, Peabody and many Cajun dances including Zydeco and unique versions of waltz and swing, the list just goes on and on. Kinda like me... :)

What is the difference between a present participle and a past participle?

The past participle is the “-ed” form of a verb, which can be used to form the perfect aspect (“I have walked.”) and the passive voice (“The call was recorded.”), as well as an adjective with the meaning of the passive (“a recorded call”). For regular verbs, the past participle is the same as the past tense, and both end in “-ed” or something pretty close. For irregular verbs, the past tense and past participle may be very different (“eat/ate/eaten”).The present participle is one group of uses of the “-ing” form of a verb. (There used to be two clearly separate forms, the present participle and the gerund, but they merged to form a single “-ing” form, and we persist with two different names.) The present participle is use to form the continuous tenses (“I am walking.”) and as an adjective with the same meaning (“a walking horse”). (The gerund is the “-ing” form used as a noun: “Walking is healthy.”)
