Popular dances have captivated people throughout the ages. Some dances are ancient and have roots in India and Egypt. Others are more recent, such as hip-hop, but they all share a common goal – artistic expression. Here are three dances that have made their way into popular culture. We will look at the history of these dances and how they came to be so popular.

The Egyptian dance was popularized by the Bangles in their music video for the hit song. The songwriter was inspired by people dancing on a ferry, splaying their arms out like the characters in ancient Egyptian paintings. Another popular dance is the cabbage patch, named after a song by Gucci Crew II, which references the ’80s fad Cabbage Patch dolls.

Other popular dances include the YMCA and the Charleston. The first two were popular in the 1920s and the 1970s, but the latter came into its own in the 1980s. Throughout the 1980s, other dances became popular, including the moonwalk, the Thriller, and hustling in disco clubs.

Dances have been influenced by social media as more people turn to streaming services for their music. The internet is filled with dance videos of popular songs. Many of these dance videos have reached over one billion YouTube views. Streaming music has also helped spread the word about dance, resulting in many new hybrid pieces.
