The dance battle has begun

The dance battle has begunThere are several different styles of dancing but it’s quite obvious that there can only be one best version. Take a minute and read on to learn the best type of dancing, what’s in and what’s out and what’s just retarded.

Dance is an art form that generally refers to movement of the body, rhythmic and to music. You need to keep that in mind when you are thinking about the following, as all the bottom dance styles were graded upon their art form as well as adhering to the term of being rhythmic.

Contra (created in 17th century)
Folk dance styles in which couples dance in two facing lines of indefinite length. The initial contra dances were created in England.

Favorite Dancer:
* John Butler


Clogging (created in early 1700s)
Type of folk dance rooted in traditional European dancing from the British Isles, in which the dancer’s footwear is used musically by striking the heel, the toe, or both in unison against a floor or each other to create audible percussive rhythms.

Favorite Dancers:
* Harland and Samantha McDermott

Jazz (created in 20th century)

Primarily American musical art form which originated at the beginning of the 20th century in African American communities in the Southern United States from a confluence of African and European music traditions.

Favorite Dancers:
* Goth Crew

Tap (created in 19th century)

The name comes from the tapping sound made when metal plates on the dancer’s shoes touches a hard surface. Because the dancer makes sound, they are also considered a musician.

Favorite Dancer:

Swing (created in 20th century)

Line (created in 20th century)

Any one of the several dances in which two individuals, a “leader” and a “follower,” dance with physical contact through their upper or lower bodies, or simply their arms depending on the particular variety of dance.

Break (created in 20th century)

A street dance style that evolved as part of the hip hop movement among African American and Puerto Rican youths in Manhattan and the South Bronx of New York City during the early 1970s. May have begun as a building, productive, and a constructive youth culture alternative to the violence of urban street gangs.

Ballet (created in 17th century)

Formalized type of performative dance, the origins of which date lay in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century French courts, and which was further developed in England, Italy, and Russia as a concert dance form.

Favorite Dancer:
* Judy Summers and Nick Papadopoulos

Belly (created in 19th century)

Native to North Africa, Asia and the Middle East, belly dancing is based on one of the oldest social dances in world history. Support for this theory stems from similarities between poses from the modern dance form and those depicted in ancient Egyptian art.

Favorite Dancer:
* any in-shape woman

Pole (created in 21st century)

A form of dancing/gymnastics. It involves dancing sensually with a vertical pole and is often used in strip clubs and gentlemen’s clubs, although more recently artistic pole dancing (Chinese poles) is used in cabaret/circus and stage performance in a non-erotic environment. Advanced pole dancing requires significant strength and endurance.

Favorite Dancer:
* every girl we’ve thrown money at


All dancing with the exception of pole dancing requires certain clothes, costumes, and dance shoes. The clothing styles vary even within their own categories, the costumes in some dance routines cost thousands of dollars. The shoes… well, they seem to be the only thing that ties every different type of dance together besides having the physical ability to move.

Even when there is no clothing or costume being used, like in pole dancing, there are still shoes. As Chris Rock states in a stand-up routine, all pole dancers are issued tall heeled glass sandals.

If you are looking at getting more involved in dancing it might be best to start with the shoes. Head over to http://www.movedancewear.co.uk/ and find dance shoes that you like. Whatever you choose for a shoe will help you decide what type of dancer you will become. Ballet, ballroom, tap, jazz, flamenco, tap, and many more.
