Dancehall is an energetic Jamaican dance style with afro and hip-hop influences. What you can expect with this type of dance is that you learn to consciously move your hips and chest to nice music. Although dancehall often emphasizes the movement of the hips, it is not just about ‘booty shaking’. The technique and attitude required to make this dance a success require the capacity to let you go completely but at the same time keep control of your hips. Keywords that you often hear after a dancehall class are: fun, exotic, energetic, feminine but tough at the same time and above all very dynamic. The style has fast and energetic movements that are interspersed with soft qualities.
