10 Most Famous Styles of Dance Around the World

Dance is the only art where we ourselves are the material of which the art is made. The most authentic expression of a people is in its dance and music.

Here is a list of some of the most famous dance styles performed around the world.

Hip-Hop Dance

Hip-hop is a style of dance that is generally performed with hip-hop music, which was developed from hip-hop culture. This dance consists mainly of movements performed close to the ground.

Belly Dancing

The term “belly dancing” is an inaccurate name since every part of the body is involved in the dance. The most accentuated part of the body is the hips. This dance originated in the Middle East.

Salsa

Salsa is a genre of syncretic dance from Cuba.  Salsa is normally a partner dance, although individual forms are also recognized.  It is a dance that represents very well the warmth and sensuality of Latin America.

Ballroom Dancing

The term “ballroom dancing” refers to a set of associated dances that are enjoyed both socially and competitively around the world.  Its performance and entertainment are also widely enjoyed in theater, movies, and television, as well as dance camps and classes.

Tap

Tap is a dance form characterized by a sound created by metal plates that are attached to both the ball and the heel of the dancer’s shoe.  When struck against a hard surface, these metal plates create a percussion sound, and thus the dancers are also considered musicians.

Bhangra

The Bhangra dance originated in northern India and southern Pakistan, from a region called Punjab that shares its culture between the two nations.  It is not only a cultural activity but also a way to control stress generated by daily activities.

Breakdancing

Breakdancing incorporates many types of movements that can vary as greatly as imagination and athleticism allow. The inventory of breakdance movements is very large, and there are competitions and dance tours around the world.

Irish Dancing

Originally from Ireland, this interesting dance is usually done in groups, but when performed as a solo dance, it is generally characterized by a stiff upper body and rapid, precise movements of the feet.

Robot Dance

The robot is an illusionary style of dance, with steps that attempt to imitate a dancing robot or mannequin. It was invented by Charles Washington.

Line Dance (Country Dance)

A line dance is dance choreography with a repeated sequence of steps in which a group of people dance in one or more lines or rows without taking into account the dancers’ genders.  They all dance in the same direction and execute the steps at the same time.
