Jamaica, Land Of Wood And Water... And Dance!


"SI DI DANCE deh, Ice him a do di Willy Bounce
Si di dance deh, Bwoysy a do di Willy Bounce
...
" (Bogle - All Dem Deh)

Yes, if yuh caan do di Willy Bounce and di Out and Band yuh a bat! It's the latest dance craze to hit the Jamaican dance scene. Patrons in every club and session can be seen at some point doing the Willy Bounce to a range of dancehall songs and the commands of the ever shouting selector.

Jamaica is has been called the sprint factory in the athletic circle but it has certainly earned another name for it's self, no not the murder capital of the region! The country of Jamaica has earned the title of "Dance Factory". It seems that almost every month a new dance is invented by one of the many and ever increasing dancers. On a typical club night will get your fill of a range of dances done by individuals and the dance crews. Patrons can be seen doing the Willy Bounce, the Out and Band and the Weddi Weddi.

The past two years have given birth to an arsenal of dances, spearheaded by the Energy God: Elephant Man and the late Bogle as well as other dance inventors like John Hype and Sadeiky. The names of these songs are as unusual al the moves that mimic many everyday actions. A few of these dances are: Scooby Doo, Shelly Belly, Row De Boat, Signal de Plane, Pan de River, Log On, Higher Level, Online, Sesame Street, Thuda Clap, Weddi Weddi, And-one and the latest craze Willy Bounce and Out and Band.

Jamaicans are certainly one creative set of people and we certainly know how to party. I am certain there will be a lot more new dances before the year ends. Well, mi gone practice mi moves! Have a wonderful weekend all.

abeni, if you get to watch sean Paul's new video, WE BE BURNING, he does a version of the willy bounce in that one.

I like to see people do the dances but I myself will not be doing them. I'm a winer/bubbler ... I'll stick to "flingin' it up".

I'm not good at describing dances, as I have 2 left feet. But, I will try to fing a clip for you.

In the mean time as yamfoot said Sean Paul video has the dance and Elephant man also has the dance in his latest video.
