Disco Never Dies

Some of you may remember Disco music because you are old enough and others because you have seen old footage of people with dodgy hair and funny clothes dancing away to it. The one thing for sure is that it is still inspiring artists today and still bringing a smile to our faces when we hear and watch it.

Its been 40 years since Carl Douglas and his Kung-Fu Fighting beat its way to the top of the charts but how did disco all begin? Well the roots of disco is often attributed to have started in New York and Philadelphia in the late 1960's and early 70's but becoming more recognised as traditional disco music around 1973/74.

Now as we know disco never truly dies and like fashion has a habit of coming back so we thought it was important that people have a learning resource that they can use to learn the skills of true disco dancing. So we would like to hand you over to the Malmen-Disco video which proves that disco is disco no matter what language it is in. So as they say enjoy as Yes disco never dies.
