DANCEHALL

Ballroom Dancing Club

Style Description

Dancehall began as a music movement in late 1970s Jamaica and its name is referring to the physical dance halls in which people used to congregate. There was a real racial and cultural divihde at the time, so dance halls were a placewhere the black working class could meet, socialize, and have fun together. 

The music of dancehall is a shift from reggae to a more modern sound, with the use of electronic instruments. A hallmark of dancehall music is the use of riddims (digital rhythms) over which different singers can perform different lyrics. Some riddims feature in hundreds of songs.

Dancehall dancing is ever-changing, ever-growing, and ever-evolving. Dance moves that are inspired by big songs are constantly being added to the mix, so if you spend a few years out of the scene you can really lose touch with the moves that are being used!
