Complexities Of Liquid Dancing Explained

May 20, 2008
The name liquid dancing could speak for itself, as it does indeed include many dance moves that appear liquid in movement. But in actuality, liquid dancing is usually a "melting pot" of other dance techniques found in funk, interpretive dance, and other styles of artistic dance.

It has long been debated as to what exactly liquid dancing is. Many claim that it is just other styles of dances with a few tricks mixed in. Others say that the dance type is a style in all its own, as it originates from the club era and has true roots in dancing history. Either way, the dancing style is defined as borrowing moves from other styles, so in effect both sides of the debate could be true.

Liquid dancing is simple enough to get down in theory, but actually going about doing the dance when in the midst of others can prove to be a task in itself. Liquid dancing focuses on being in tune with rhythm, in which case just reading about the dance moves will do little for those who wish to practice the acclaimed dancing style. Without the rhythm in check, it's said that liquid dancing is not being performed.

Popular moves in the liquid dancing technique include the techniques named "builds," "waves," and "traces." The build is something like you'd see from a mime- it involves interacting with an object that is imaginary, yet the interaction is made to be believable. Waves and traces both use the hands to simulate fluid movements- whether it be outlining one's own body or simulating waves with the arms and hands.

For those who don't seem to gain enough attention from their dancing routine via liquid dancing will often accommodate their dancing style with lighting- such as glowsticks. Although it is quite popular among liquid dancers to incorporate glowsticks into their routines, many modern clubs and the like will not allow such items for fear of injury and dispute concerns. Glowsticking has thus become less common in the club scene, but it still remains to be a very popular rave and party dance style.

When it comes to actually learning about the ins and outs of glowsticking, liquid dancing, and the dancing styles that are used in liquid dancing, it is important to consult videos of some nature. Videos will allow one to repeat steps and moves that are very visual oriented. Simply reading about such moves will do little to give hopeful liquid dancers a healthy introduction into the dancing style. Getting online videos or videos from the local rental store can prove to be a cheap and yet effective way to learn an entire dancing style within days.

Closing Comments

Raves, parties, and clubs just wouldn't be complete without the liquid dancing techniques that have become a part of common dance routines. Thus, it's important to learn such techniques to incorporate them into one's sense of dancing style. This can better diversify one's tastes, artistic direction, and overall create a better appeal to others. But before creativity takes over one's dancing routine, make sure that clubs and the like approve of some gear such as glowsticks or other light emitting devices first.
