What a gorgeous setting for this video! Hector Afromanga is known for choosing some pretty breathtaking backdrops for his dance videos, and this is no exception. And the way he and Arben Giga work together is amazing to watch. Their routes into dance are pretty different but there’s no doubt that they both bring the same level of skill (and fun!) to their dance routines.

Arben Giga also started dancing at the age of 10 and he specializes in breakdance, contemporary, and hip hop. You may well have seen his face before because he has danced with some pretty big names, including Coldplay, Kylie Minogue, and LMFAO. He was also the choreographer for Just Dance 4 and Just Dance 2014.

Fusing different dance styles together isn’t uncommon, and the great thing about dance is that it is ever-evolving, giving each new wave of dancers the chance to make their own mark and come up with their own styles. Afro dance/Afrobeats in particular is a perfect example of the magic that can happen when dance styles are fused together. It takes its influences from all across the African diaspora, with elements of West African traditional dance, contemporary, hip hop, and more.

All of these dance styles are a great option if you’re looking for a new style to learn. They tend to be fast-paced and fun, and you never stop moving. This means that you will get super fit and have an amazing time doing so. You might even get the chance to show off some of your own moves!
