Transcript of Evolution of Dance

Modern Dance
The disco revolution lit up the 1970s. Taking the nation by storm, this contagious dance fever of platform shoes, pointing fingers, and disco balls lit up the dance floor. As well to disco, the hussle and the cha-cha electrically moved audiences.
Having it's origin from swing dancing, the high school "sock-hop" is the perfect example of stylized dance in the 50's and 60's. This was the birth of rock and roll as seen performed by artists such as Elvis Presley and the Beatles.
The classy styles of the 1920s through the 1940s are reflected by the Charleston Swing. This tasteful dance is named for the harbor city of Charleston, SC.
The era of big hair and leg warmers did not disappoint.
Hip hop was originated in the Bronx, NY. Break dancing was also common in the 90's.
The more modern dance styles are epitomized by synchronized dances.
The start of a new generation.
"Twerking is a type of dancing in which the dancer, usually a woman, shakes her hips in an up-and-down bouncing motion, causing the dancer's buttocks to shake, 'wobble' and 'jiggle'[...] twerking was introduced into hip-hop culture by way of the New Orleans bounce music scene [...] receiving recognition in national releases at least as early as the year 2000 [...] the Twerk Team was mentioned in the song 'Round of Applause' by Waka Flocka Flame [including other songs like] 'Bandz A Make Her Dance', 'Pop That', and the 'Dougie'."
