Dancing as a social entertainment is based on the European high society ballroom culture that started to take shape from the 12th century onwards.

Social dance influenced and changed pleasant dance gradually, although the impact have been two-ways. It is difficult to point out uniquely national dance heritage, because of the extreme international mobility of dance traditions.
