Dance music


DANCE music is the carrier of electronic music, which refers to electronic DANCE music and dance pop music. It has nothing to do with HIPHOP or R&B. The origin of the word comes from a film in 1935 called “Looking at Dance Music.” Electronic music has both dance music and non-dance music, so the broad EDM represents a part of dance music in electronic music. In the primitive society, dance is integrated with music and poetry. Due to the low material production conditions and artistic level, the music is very simple (mostly original singing or percussion). In the West, dance first developed into an independent art of ancient Greece. In the early Middle Ages, due to the fierce opposition of the church, the development of dance encountered great resistance. Around 1300, in a paper by the music theorist Joannes degrocheo, there were reports about stantipais (a dance music sung by minstlers) and duketia (a dance music without singing). In the classics of the late 13th century, there was a dance melody in the tenor.Due to the enthusiasm of the 15th century European Court of Justice, Western dance music entered its first period of prosperity in the 15th century. In the 16th century, in the keyboard ensemble music, there was a pair of different speeds composed of front and back dances (such as Pasamizo-saltarello in Italy, pavan gaillard in England, etc.). At the same time, German conductors, French courant, Spanish salaband and Italian or English jigs began to become important dance types, and in the mid-17th century, through the contrast principle of dance before and after, developed into a “classical suite” It consists of four dance pieces. During this period, a group of dance music from the French folk (bray, paspiere, rigodon, etc.) was artistic in the French court. The most important of these is the minuet. The 18th century was an era of small step dances and an important development in the Scottish dance music and performances. Waltz was the evolution of the thriving 19th century and led the evolution of social dance. In the 1830s to 1850s, mazurkas, polkas, garlops, polonaises and other dance music were widely spread in Europe. After the rise of folk music schools, many folk dance types were explored and valued by composers. Among them, Spain’s segedia, hota, fandango, etc. have been widely concerned and used by professional musicians. Since the 20th century, many folk and social dances in Latin America and the United States (Tango, Rumba, Samba, Conga, Foxtrot, One Step, Charleston, etc.) have been popular in many countries around the world.
