    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.
