Dancehall | Urbanity Dance Chicago

Dancehall

Dancehall music began in the late 60’s in Jamaica, whereas Dancehall moves and steps branched off of reggae music in the 70’s

African culture, Hip Hop music, and today's American culture are some of the biggest influences in Dancehall's most popular social steps.

Dancehall movement is distinguished by it's low stances, energetic yet chill rhythmic movement, hip whines, body rolls, and full fluid movements of the spine (especially in the lower spine).

Dancehall can inspire body empowerment through discovering and embracing your sensuality, not just sexuality, of the body. It can help grow confidence in one’s own body movement, it's great cardio, and Dancehall social steps are still seen at clubs current day so it's super versatile and usable!
