The History of Disco
Now that we’ve looked at a few examples of disco fashion, let’s go back in time and take a look at how disco began back in the seventies.
Maia Kushick gives us some insight into Disco Fashion in this video
It was a trend that started in Philadelphia by African, American and Hispanic communities resulting in the popular club culture with its multicolored lights and dresses or outfits with loads of sequins on them. The first album considered to be Disco was released in 1972 by Manu Dibango and it was called Soul Makossa. Other artists including the Bee Gees, Donna Summer and The Jacksons picked up on the trend and created their own style of the genre.
Here is a video with Manu Debango – Soul Makossa Live
Disco dancing had its influences from genres of music such as Rock, Blues, Soul and of course Funk and the different kinds of ‘moves’ or styles were created by choreographers of all levels to meet and blend with the different kinds of Disco music. One such classic move was the Hustle which you danced with a partner which incorporated elaborate hand movements with sleek turns and twists and essentially was based on the 1950s and 60s Swing. As with many dance types, Disco had its roots in Latin American and African dance styles – Dances such as the Mambo and Salsa. During the earlier part of the 1970s ‘in-line’ dancing became popular, starting in both New York City and Florida and it used a combination of the hip sways of swing while at the same time the Salsa foot rhythm.
One of the early Disco dances evolved from line dancing and was named the ‘Hustle’ which was also the title track of the single by Van McCoy and the Soul City Symphony. Dance moves were then created for David Todds ‘Disco Baby. Here’s a video of Van McCoy’s Disco Baby track.
This track together with the Hustle quickly became popular in New York’s East side and eventually throughout the rest of the world. Dance moves were further refined and became bolder with suggestive jumps and jerky movements.
Enjoy your Disco Fashion and have a great party anytime of year.
