Disco came about in the 1960s and 1970s. Many teenagers and young people would go to the discotheques to dance the disco. This was a fast-paced type of dancing with the dancer moving their arms up and down and moving their feet very fast. Disco was influenced by other forms of dance including swing dance which is a fast partner dance which the male dance partner picks up the girl and swings her around.

It was also influenced by mambo and cha-cha dancing. Even though these dances required partners, the disco didn’t necessarily require partners to dance to. The Waltz dance did not influence disco because the waltz dance is very slow and methodical with certain steps.
