Dances have been a way for people to express themselves for centuries. From ballet, which dates back more than 600 years, to hip-hop, which is relatively new, people have been moving their bodies to express their emotions. While each style of dance has its own origin and style, all of them have the same goal: artistic expression.
Some of the most popular dances are based on famous artists and celebrities. Popular artists have used social media to spread their moves and create new viral sensations. For instance, “Gangnam Style” by South Korean producer PSY has reached over one billion views. This dance, which has become a meme, combines a hopping and jumping movement with a catchy tune by rapper MC Hammer.
Dance has long held social, spiritual, and cultural values. It has become a part of many cultures and has become one of the most recognized genres. International Dance Day, held on April 29th, honors the art form. It also highlights the diversity of dance forms and contexts. For example, contemporary dances such as tap, breakdance, and ballet are often considered popular forms of modern dance.
Various dance styles emerged during the 1960s, which are still popular today. A few of the most popular movements from the 1960s include the Popping, Robot, and Locking. Locking and Popping were largely created by Don Campbell, a Californian.
