Afro Dance Styles is a combination of energetic dance styles that originate in Africa. The style derives from Kuduro, an Angolan dance style that evolved during a period of war, making it quite a ‘hard’ dance style. Besides elements of Kuduro, Afro House also has a softer, more cheerful side, inspired by - among other styles - Pantsula, a dance style developed in South Africa and discovered by Angolan youth on their travels. They were the ones who developed the mixed dance style into the form we now know as Afro House.
