Afro & Dancehall

Both Afrodance, Afrobeats and Dancehall are derived from the African dances, with Dancehall being a Caribbean dance and music style originally from Jamaica. The rhythms of reggae are still very prominent in the music, and so are the dance movements from the traditions of West Africa. The dances are very modern and current, having been influenced by United States hip hop, the Latin Caribbean dances and the African dances. 

Soca, or the "Soul of Calypso" is the South Caribbean equivalent in Trinidad & Tobago, where ethnic inspirations from the East Indies were added to the mix.

 

Heels

Heels dance is the new craze and very popular for backup dancers and social media influencers, incorporating elements of Hip-Hop, Twerk, Chair, Burlesque and other dances. 

The dance style is a symbol for female empowerment and feeling good in their body.
