History of Dancing
The exact origin of dance is lost through the ages. However in most ancient civilisations, rhythmic movements of the legs and body began as a form of worship for the deities, a ritual still among some African tribes today. From simple waving hands and stamping feet, dances have developed into highly choreographed and sophisticated acts, with new shows appearing every year. Accompanied by the appropriate music, dance performances are liken to fine works of art, exciting and pleasurable.
Very popular among cool kids in the United Kingdom, Canada, Japan, Germany, France, Russia, and South Korea. First performed by African American and Latina youths. They call themselves b-boy, b-girl, or breaker. A breaker usually pulls off challenging or seeming impossible moves, dazzling the crowd with their gravity-defying skills. Breakers are available for hire.
Latin dances are fast-paced, sensual and have more rhythmic expression than other ballroom dances. Couples dance in a closed, tight position, and sometimes holding only one hand. Quick paced rhythms and playful movements make the various Latin dances endlessly entertaining, sometimes even breathtaking.
These are the 5 main Latin dances:
Energetic and sassy, the Cha-Cha is danced to authentic Latin music.
Also known as the ‘dance of love’. Accompanied by romantic, Latin love songs, it is fun and simple to learn.
Often difficult to master, the Samba is a lively Brazilian dance consisting of many jumps and turns. The pace is extremely fast.
Meaning “two step” in Spanish, Pasa Doble is a lively, march-like dance without much hip movement
A variation of the Jitterbug, the Jive consists of dance steps similar to country dancing.
Latin dancers are available for hire.
Hip-hop dance refers to street dance styles performed to hip-hop music or that have evolved from hip-hop culture. It includes a wide range of styles primarily breaking, locking, and popping which were created in the 1970s. Similar to break dancing, hip hop is defined by its daring and adventurous moves, however the latter is more organised. Hip hop dancers are available for hire
Belly dancing has roots in all ancient cultures from the orient to India to the mid-East. Probably the greatest misconception about belly dancing is that it is intended to entertain men.
Traditionally this ritualised expression has been performed for other women usually during bridal shower. In most cases, the presence of men is not permitted. After its debut in USA, it has evolved to an exotic form of entertainment for tourist and diners. Belly dancers are available for hire.
Dancing is a pleasure to watch, but a greater pleasure to indulge in.
