Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The B.P.P.D.A. (Brazilian ParaPara Dance Association) is the association that commands the parapara scene in Brazil. With representatives in two major cities in Brazil, (Rio de Janeiro and S o Paulo), the BPPDA hosts events, participates in some Anime events, makes special performances, records DVDs by its two official groups (NRG-Y and SUPERPARA) and even supports a big parapara party called the ALPHA party.Para Para dancing consists of mostly arm movements; very little lower body movement is involved save for perhaps moving one's hips or stepping in place (although a few routines require more detailed leg motions). It has been speculated that it is a descendant of the traditional Bon Odori dance, however there is no known link. The dance originated in the early 80's when men working in the VIP room in clubs would choreograph dances to impress women[citation needed].show more
