Since the beginning of time people have danced
to music, from the tribal dances of Africa through to the Ballroom
dances at the turn of the century. Then came the 1960's and 70's
and a new standard for dance was set, this was the emergence of
'Disco' dancing. Gone was the partner and people moved and danced
by themselves on the dance floor.
Streetdance is the modern emergence of Disco and consists of choreographed
routines to popular music. Danced by all the popstars and seen
in videos and on TV this style has increased in popularity over
the last couple of years to become the dance style that everyone
wants to do. Danced to a huge variety of music from hip hop to
reggae, pop music to latin, it is also a fun way to keep fit through
the energy of the dancing.
Freestyle Disco is routine based and can be a little more in depth
than streetdance with dancers doing flips and jumps. There are
many competitions around the world for freestyle.
