    What makes a great dance video

    We believe that a great video of dancers has a lot in common with a great live performance, and you can tell a lot about a dance group by their videos. For both, a variety of elements come together to create an engaging and memorable experience. Here are some of the factors that make a great show, whether in person or on film:

    Choreography: A thoughtful and creative choreographer will make a performance really stand out. It should be visually compelling, challenging and appeal to the audience.

    Music: Dancing should always be accompanied by appropriate and engaging music that complements the choreography.

    Performers: Great dancers will bring a lot of energy and emotion to any performance, as they execute the choreography with precision, grace and expression.

    Visuals: A great dance show needs to have strong visuals that enhance the overall experience. This could include lighting, costumes and makeup.

    Storytelling: A great performance may also tell a story, whether it's an actual narrative, or simply conveying emotions or concepts.

    All of these elements come together to create a memorable, engaging and enjoyable viewing experience that leaves a lasting impression on the audience. With Hips Don't Lie dance performers you'll see all of these elements wherever we perform!

    Dance videos - choose your style

    Hips Don't Lie performers are experts in many different styles of dancing and love creating new performances, mixing different types, and expressing particular themes and stories through movement. While the best way to experience our dancing is by watching a live show, you can get a great idea about what our group can do by watching as our team dances in our videos. Here are some of the many styles you'll see portrayed in our videos, so watch them now:

    • Bellydancing - this middle eastern style is a favourite of our founder, Lyana, and watching her move is a real treat.
    • Burlesque - mixing elements of erotic dancing with circus performance, burlesque can be funny, cheeky, sexy and so much more.
    • Latin dancing - when you watch this type of dancing you'll experience sensuality and passion while watching the energetic moves of the performers.
    • Bollywood - this style of dancing is generally high energy and usually tells a story through movement. The songs used are lively and the costumes are bright and colourful.
    • Ballroom - classy, refined and traditional are words that come to mind when you think of ballroom dancing, and this style is perfect for more formal events.
    • Jazz - this type of dancing is energetic and unique with performers moving in synch.
    • Contemporary - this style mixes many forms of dancing to create something unique for every single show, as performers use their bodies to express emotions and tell stories.
    • Hip-Hop - both a style of music and dancing, this modern, edgy, art form may have come from the streets but can bring a modern edge to any event.

      Frequently asked questions

      What is the most famous dance move?

      The most famous dance move is likely the Moonwalk, which was made famous by Michael Jackson during his performance of "Billie Jean" on the television program "Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever" in 1983.
      However, Jackson didn't invent this move - it used to be called the "backslide" and was probably invented in the 1930s and has been regularly performed ever since.

      What is the best dance video of all time?

      This is a controversial question; we think if you ask 10 people, you'll get at least 10 different answers. A couple of our favourites include Madonna's "Vogue" music video, and going a lot further back, Gene Kelly's "Singing in the Rain" from the movie of the same name. Both of these are classics and highlight very different styles of dance.

      What is the most viewed dance video on YouTube?

      Currently, the most viewed dancing video on YouTube, with a crazy 1.2 billion views, is BLACKPINK's "How You Like That". The K-Pop sensations video is actually pretty simple, compared to many other music videos of people dancing, focusing entirely on the stars performing their dance routine in front of a pink background. This goes to show that people really appreciate great moves!

      What are the 10 most popular dances?

      It's hard to say exactly what the 10 most popular dances are but here are 10 of our favourites from all around the world:

      • Belly dance
      • Salsa
      • Hip-hop
      • Irish stepdance
      • Samba
      • Flamenco
      • Waltz
      • Bharatnatyam
      • Burlesque
      • Ballet

      What is the hardest dance move to do?

      Many people will agree that going en pointe in ballet is one of the most challenging dance moves around. This is where ballerinas put their entire body weight on the toes of a single foot. Other people would argue that other ballet moves or certain breakdancing moves are more complex. It really depends on your body type, your flexibility and strength, as to which movement you'll find the most difficult.

      What's the top TikTok dance challenge?

      The top TikTok dance challenge of 2022 was probably "the Box". The TikTok app has changed the world of dance videos forever with people reaching TikTok fame after completing a challenge on the popular social media site. The top challenges change all the time depending on what's easy to perform, what song is trending right now, and what people most enjoy dancing to, so get inspired by logging into the app now.
