Different dance styles
Watch the first dance lesson on the video below.
Make sure you have enough room space to follow the dance steps.
The video will begin with a few warm up activities.
In South America ‘line dancing’ is very popular. There are lots of events and competitions. They dance in a barn and dress up as cowboys!
Line dancing started in England and moved to America.
People dance the same steps all together - they do it as a way of socialising and feeling part of a community, like how you might go to an afterschool club and make different friends!
Watch this video to see what it’s like to be part of a line dance!
Hip-hop has been around since 1980’s.
DJ's would play instrumental of a song so people could dance for longer.
Hip-hop originated from the African American culture expressing themselves.
