A Gangnam Style Dance Experience

In 1998, a South Korean artist made a popular video called “Gangnam Style.” This was an unprecedented attempt at pop culture and integration of music into the pop culture of that era. Most artists at that point were more into singing and writing. The video was meant to just be fun and not necessarily take itself too serious. It was more fun, whimsical video and nothing more.

Engage With The Music

Second, it gave viewers the chance to actually engage with the music. People could actually step into the music and try out the Gangnam Style dance moves. This allowed for fans to learn the dance and maybe even have some fun with it at the same time. The music video also gave viewers a chance to see what the dancing was like before they had the chance to see the actual dance routine performed live. Most people never got to see this so it was very impressive.

Funky And Upbeat Zumba

As time passed other more popular dance routines were incorporated into videos. One of the most popular being the funky and upbeat Zumba. The gingham style dance is still pretty new but it is becoming more popular as time goes on. It appears that the popularity will only continue to grow and the dance may gain more followers in the future.

There are a few different steps in the Gangnam Style. Each is a little different but they all have the same goal. That goal is to create an energy and to make the audience feel like they are part of the music. Many people enjoy this popular dance because it is fast and has a fun tone to it. This dance can be used at any point during a song or for an entire video.

Snake Kick And The Moonwalk

A video for the song “T-Pain” features members of the band performing some of the more advanced moves in the gangnam style. You can see them doing the snake kick and the moonwalk. A few seconds later, they perform some of the older moves like the triangle and the fish. You can even catch a glimpse of Michael Buble’s face when he gets to perform the jet ski kick in the first video. While it is not exactly a traditional gingham style move, it is definitely impressive considering how good the members look.

For fans who are less familiar with this type of dance, a gingham style video can help give you a good idea of what it looks like. It gives you the basics to watch for and gives you an idea of where the costumes and moves come from. Most of the moves are performed by male dancers and there are a couple of female ones as well. It is a great way to learn how this fun dance group does what they do.


The members of this dance group have performed other songs that have been showcased in the music video. Some of these include hits by boy band The Black Eyed Peas, K pop group girl u-xie, and girl band pony show. While this may not mean much to some people, watching this first video will help you get a feel for what the members of G-unit are all about.
