Dancehall: what is it and what is it for in sport

Dancehall is a style of music that has its origins in Jamaican culture. Although the type of dance has things in common with hip hop, the place where they come from and the style of dance is very different.
It is a very sensual dance, with references to African and Caribbean dances, in which the movement of the hips, similar to twerking, is the key to being the queen of the floor.

Dance schools and academies, as well as other centers that offer activities, are committed to dancehall, which in Jamaican culture is a way of social encounter.
