Topic: List of novelty and fad dances


  
  Novelty and fad dances - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fad dances are dances which are characterized by a short burst of popularity, while Novelty dances typically have a longer-lasting popularity based on their being characteristically humorous or humour-invoking, as well as the sense of uniqueness which they have.
Dances such as the waltz, jitterbug, or the Charleston were once fads, that have become a part of dance tradition.
Novelty dances are meant to be funny, and to evoke general mirth verging on silliness in participants.

 List of dances - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 Group dance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Group dances are danced by groups of people simultaneously, as opposed to individuals dancing alone or individually, and as opposed to couples dancing together but independently of others dancing at the same time, if any.
The dances are generally, but not always, coordinated or standardized in such a way that all the individuals in the group are dancing the same steps at the same time.
An exception to this generalization must be pointed out where groups of individuals are dancing independently of each other, but with the purpose of creating a "group" feeling or experience, such as might accompany various forms of ritual dancing.

The exact origin of the dance is somewhat disputed but it is known to have begun in Brazil and has forerunners such as the forró, sayas, the maxixe, and the carimbó.
Today the majority of Lambada is danced to Zouk music and the dance evolved so much from its original form that there is an ongoing discussion whether the Zouk-Lambada is a new type of dance or just the natural evolution of the Lambada of the early 90's.
By 1983 the Carimbó dance began once more to be danced in couples, in a 2-beat style, something very similar to the Merengue, but with the addition of many spins.

 Boogaloo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Boogaloo (shing-a-ling, popcorn music) is a genre of Latin music and dance that was very popular in the United States in the late 1960s.
The Latin boogaloo (also spelled "bugalu") is to be distinguished from the funk-oriented dance style by the same name, which is generally known as the electric boogaloo.
Though the dance craze was over by the turn of the decade, boogaloo was popular enough that almost every major and minor Latin dance artist of the time recorded at least a few boogaloos on their albums.

Dance generally refers to human movement either used as a form of expression or presented in a social, spiritual or performance setting.
It was during the explosion of new thinking and exploration in the early 20th century that dance artists began to appreciate the qualities of the individual, the necessities of ritual and religion, the primitive, the expressive and the emotional.
By the 1980s dance had come full circle and modern dance (or, by this time, ‘contemporary dance') was clearly still a highly technical and political vehicle for many practitioners.

Sometimes people dance for joy, sometimes for sorrow, and when they wanna flirt they dance salsa, this is definitely the dance for courtship.

In the 1950s and 60s, African Americans in the United States listened to a number of styles of music, including jump blues, R&B and doo wop.
Inspired by these two successes, a number of bands began imitating their infectious rhythms (which were Latinized R&B), intense conga rhythms and clever novelty lyrics.
Some long-time veteran Latin musicians played an occasional boogaloo number, including Perez Prado and Tito Puente, but most of the performers were teenagers like The Latin Souls, The Lat-Teens, Pucho & His Latin Soul Brothers, Joe Bataan and The Latinaires.

Musicians on other mailing lists have managed to get awfully worked up about how their output is perceived or used by their audience, in some cases reaching the point of getting into shit-flinging matches with people who were "obviously just missing the point".
I have seen it many times on mailing lists -- there are those that state their honest opinions, and then there are others who just try to make things "allright", return the conversation to its proper balance, with "the" question still hanging, forever undecided.
Specialists might have more knowledge, but since they always have an agenda (getting their paycheck, complying to the latest intellectual fad, etc), a non-specialist who has escaped brainwash has something to say that can be as relevant.
