House Dance originated in the 1980s and is a dance style based on house music. You can recognise House Dance from the many energetic dance moves and the fast footwork. The roots of House Dance lie in clubs in Chicago and New York; it was formed from a range of cultural dance styles, including African dance, Latin dance, tap dance, jazz, hip hop, breakdance and martial arts. House Dance invites you to move freely, to lose yourself in the music and to express that in your dancing. It's a dance style packed with self-expression and freestyle is an important aspect of the lessons.
