You might have noticed that certain dance styles really lend themselves to certain genres of music. After all, salsa is danced to salsa music, bachata to bachata music, and tango to tango music. But what about music styles like hard rock? Is there any way to dance to them?
Check out this video of Ustin and Ieva dancing to Zitte E Buoni. They are Latin dancers but they are applying that to hard rock music here, and some people say it works, some people say it doesn’t. What do you think?

It’s definitely a little jarring at first because we aren’t used to seeing that sort of dancing being performed to that sort of music, but the energy really does match and the result is fun and exciting. And that’s the point of art, after all. To challenge preconceived ideas and push the boundaries of what “should” and “shouldn’t” be done.
The most common dance style associated with hard rock is moshing. Moshing usually happens at a gig and it involves everybody gathering in a clearing near to the stage and jumping around, pushing and banging into each other. It has a reputation for being violent but there is a strict etiquette surrounding moshing that is aimed at preventing injuries and helping anyone who seems to be in trouble.
But moshing isn’t really what most people would consider dancing and you really can’t mosh anywhere but at a gig or concert. So what can you do if you want to dance to hard rock music but you don’t want to go to a concert or to mosh? You could try doing any sort of dance you like but to hard rock instead. There are no rules when it comes to expressing yourself!
What Ustin and Ieva have definitely proven is that if you want to dance to hard rock music, you absolutely can. So go out there and have some fun!
