Freelance writer and college English professor, Jane Hudson, provides Metro Jacksonville's readers with a list of five dances all over the world that have grown in popularity over the years.

5. Hip Hop

Hip Hop became popular in the United States in more recent history, namely the 1970s. This dance involves fluid movements of the body, many involved with the lower torso, as it moves near the ground. Michael Jackson was a tremendous dancer, and many of his moves incorporated hip hop movements, as well as break dancing. This type of dance is also known as street dancing, and it definitely has a charm all its own.

Tap and modern dance styles certainly have their own place, and there are other cultural dances such as Irish and Indian that are all about dance and delightful to see, as well. It’s hard to limit myself to just five famous types of dance, but these all have one thing in common: charm. They are just different and incredibly appealing. If you ever get a chance to travel to these great countries, pick up travel coupons such as an Olotels discount code August and head off to see these native dances for yourself.
