Disco Queens of the 1970’s

Disco dancing was a popular form of dance music that emerged in the 1970s, especially after the release of the film “Saturday Night Fever” in 1977. Disco dancing was influenced by Latin dances such as the samba, cha cha, and tango, as well as by funk, soul, and Europop.

Disco dancing was characterized by four-on-the-floor beats, syncopated basslines, string sections, horns, electric piano, synthesizers, and electric guitars. Disco dancing also introduced a new style of freeform dancing that allowed individuals to express themselves on the dance floor without a partner.

Disco dancing was a cultural phenomenon that transcended ethnic and social boundaries and created a sense of collective joy and excitement. Disco dancing also gave rise to the role of the DJ as a creative force who selected and mixed records in response to the crowd’s reactions. Disco dancing was one of the most influential musical and social movements of the 1970s.
