Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. There is great variety in dance in the Netherlands. The traditional dance is the Dutch folk dance, however this is hardly practised anymore. Many Dutch practise ballroom dancing, but also salsa (due to the immigrants from Surinam and Dutch Antilles) and line dance is very popular. Also tango has a large following.Many young girls start their dancing career with classical ballet and jazz dance.Only a few dances are invented by the Dutch. Most of the Folk Dances are Scottish in origin. The Dutch are inventors of Hakken, which was mainly danced in the Hardcore techno and Gabber scene in the Nineties. Jumpen, which was invented in Belgium, developed further in the Netherlands. The Netherlands is one of the leading countries in the Brazilian version of zouk (a successor to lambada).show more
