House dance is a footwork based movement primarily danced to house music that has roots in the clubs of Chicago and New York. Great for all levels looking to sweat and learn new steps, comfortable footwear and sweatpants is highly recommended!
 
House music arose from the ashes of disco in the mid-80's and began as a relatively small faction of club culture at underground functions. The genre of dance that developed is a stylized footwork oriented movement known as "house dancing". While house dancing is highly reminicent of it's early dance predecessors like swing, lindy hop, jazz and tap, it is a genre of dance infused with Latin American and West African cultural influences.
