There are a number of modern dances such as hip hop that evolve spontaneously, but the term "folk dances" is generally not applied to them, and the terms "street dance" or "vernacular dance" are used instead.
The term "folk dances" is reserved for dances which are to a significant degree bound by European tradition and originated in the times when the distinction existed between the dances of "common folk" and the dances of the "high society".
Although folk dancing was historically done by the common people of the local culture, international folk dance has received some popularity on college campuses and community centers within the United States and other countries.

After 1910 ragtime and ragtime dances alike began to bore and were swamped by a wave of new dances, some imported, some home-grown: tango, maxixe, hesitation waltz, half-and-half, and walks and trots of all sorts that eventually coalesced in the fox trot.
