Dance Styles - Did You Know?
House music is a style of electronic
dance music that was popularized in 1980s discothèques in the US. Since
the early to mid-1990s, it has become infused in mainstream pop and
dance music worldwide. While house music does not have a direct
predecessor in genre, it is considered to be strongly influenced by
disco with elements of soul and funk.
Ballet is a classical dance form which originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of
the 15th century. It is primarily performed with the accompaniment of
classical music (orchestral but occasionally vocal) and has been
influential as a form of dance globally. Ballet dance works (ballets)
are highly choreographed and performed by trained artists.
Merengue is a type of Latin music
and dance from the Dominican Republic. Because of its very fast tempo, its
name is thought to remind one of an egg beater in action, whipping to a
frenzy! Merengues are very fast arrangements with a 2/4 beat. The
traditional instrumentation is a diatonic accordion, a two–sided drum,
called a tambora, held on the lap, and a güira.
is a Hip Hop street dance popularized in the
US characterized by free, expressive, aggressive, exaggerated, and
highly energetic movement involving the arms, head, legs, chest, and
feet. Thematically, krumping is a freestyle Hip Hop dance subgenre with street
origins, and is used in creative competition dance
Jitterbug refers to various types of
swing dances including the Lindy Hop, Jive, and East Coast Swing.
Originating in the 1930's, it's a strenuous dance performed to
quick-tempo swing or jazz music and consists of various two-step
patterns embellished with twirls and sometimes acrobatic maneuvers.
Belly Dance is the name commonly
used in Western countries to apply to traditional Middle Eastern dance,
specifically Egyptian ghawazi dance in the 19th century, and raqs sharqi
in the 20th century. Belly dance takes different forms in different
regions, both in costume and dance style, and new styles have evolved in
the West as its popularity has spread globally.
