American Soul culture
by Anna Ikuma
I like doing street dance, especially Soul dance. America is the home of Soul dance and Soul music. Soul music is a popular music genre that originated in the United States in the 1950s and early 1960s, combining elements of African American gospel music and rhythm and blues.
Since the 1960s, the TV program “Soul Train” about Soul music was started on air, then its dance was called “Soul dance.”
I think Soul dance is so cool. While Soul is basic of all genres of street dance, it is very difficult to dance Soul for Japanese who are not accustomed to dances like what I am doing.
