A form of dance in which it is easy to depict the connection between our past and our present. House is a dance form and music genre that has to this day held great respect for anything Afro Diasporic in nature, from its beat, rhythms and grooves. House dance is the closest to the movement I envision to be more of a correlation to the African culture. The major source in house dance movement steams directly from the music and the elements within the music such as jazz, African, Latin, soul, R&B, funk, hip hop, etc. The other source is the people, the individuals and their characteristics, ethnicities, origin, etc. You make it you. 

In house dancing, there is an emphasis on the subtle rhythms and riffs of the music, and the footwork follows them closely. It is often improvised and emphasizes fast and complex foot-oriented steps combined with fluid movements in the torso.

House is a feeling and a culture.
