House

House Dance originated in the late 70’s and early 80’s from underground clubs in Chicago and New York. This style emphasises the use footwork and body flow.

House dance consists of 3 main elements – footwork, jacking & lofting.

Jacking it’s a wavy body groove starting from the hips. It makes the body groove into a music rhythm and move the whole body.

Footwork it’s a combination of movements of legs with jumps and rolls. These movements have taken influences of different styles such as tap, salsa, breaking and of course afro dances.

Lofting is a slow and drawling part of house dance. It was born in the New York club The Loft and takes its name from here. Torques, waves and acrobatic tricks came from b-boying and capoeira.
