English Northern Soul

Recommended Posts




Northern Soul is a very rare dance style and is a small part of English culture originating in the 1960s, and is one of the very few exclusive dance cultures/styles we have (as most modern dance styles are derived from dances in the US today). This style could be said to be a precursor to certain forms breakdance as well as certain styles of disco steps and house.


This style came about from a small counter culture against racism in the north of England, where White English men and women danced to Black Soul and Motown music, along with English Blacks (which was seen as very brazen back in the day), and a dance style formed out of it. It's interesting to watch.


There is also a lot of potential in there I personally find for adaptation, as many moves can be adjusted in ryhthmic style to other forms of music. I personally like to dance some NS steps to 70s-80s funk, and it turns out looking very alike to some of Michael Jackson's early moves in the 70s-80s.


But thought I'd share this tiny bit of culture of dance we have that very few (even in the UK) know about!
