Dancehall is a genre of Jamaican popular music that grew from reggae and roots style of music in the 1970’s. Developed in the dance halls of Jamaica, at parties and night clubs, Dancehall is highly energetic, with a strong focus on moving the hips and “booty”. Many moves seen in hip hop videos today are variations of popular dancehall dances such as the “dutty wine”, the “willie bounce” and the “bogle” to name a few. Students learn the different dancehall dances, while learning choreography to popular dancehall music. Lots of wining, booty shaking and sweating is guaranteed in this high energy class.
