Learn how to dance house

List of steps and moves from house dance as collected by FraGue

The list of house dance steps below is what I learned in my journey with house dance. It is not complete and will never be as our dances are still alive and growing every day.

Bold is the name of the move that I consider the correct one. Most of the time it’s the name I got taught.

(In parenthesis there are alternative names when written next to the name or general comments when in the back of the line).

In italic letters, I added additional info when I have it. The name after an s stand for source, meaning who I learned the move from. o stands for origin and is used whenever a move is from another style imported into house.

I also add a link to tutorials when I find ones, that I consider good.

We focus on stretching, body alignment, conditioning, core muscle strengthening, and balance. Programs will focus on developing the technical and stylistic qualities of jazz through exercises across the floor.

Leap Twirl & Tumble is our newest program at the studio. This curriculum is structured to stimulate coordination skills, listening skills, motor-development, balance and musicality. We use fun props and exercises as well as continue to introduce terminology in a way that is fun and entertaining for the kids. The dancers in this program will be introduced to jazz, ballet and acro. This is an independent setting, parents are not allowed in the dance studio during this session. 


This program is designed to develop rhythm and timing with the heel and the toe, while increasing the students’ tap technique/footwork. This class will teach students musicality, balance, performance, and how to use their feet as musical instruments.

We continue to incorporate proper terminology and introduce a progressive training approach. Please bring a dance bag with their change of shoes ready.

Ballet is the foundation of all dance genres; therefore, we incorporate the fundamental elements of all dance forms into the programs. At The Dance House, we suggest that all students attend at least one ballet program a week to help better the technique of each individual student. The primary objective in ballet is to develop correct alignment, musicality, strength, proper placement, discipline and grace. 


Contemporary allows dancers to experience self-expression, awareness, and confidence. The dancers will learn off-vertical alignment, balance, strength, and how to diversify their personal movement vocabulary. Contemporary is one of the most popular dance forms in the country today. 

Turns, Tricks, & Leaps

Students will explore concepts including correct alignment, innovative leaps and turns, transitional technique and groundwork tricks. Students will work on basic turns, turn sequences traveling across the floor, as well as various jumps and leaps.

  • Walking distance Metro, MCD and Railway Dmitrovskaya
  • AtmosferaWhere every beginner will feel at home
  • House dance lessons - dynamics and a special manner of performance

    years in clubs in New York and Chicago. House dance is based on three main techniques - footwork / footwork, jacking / jacking, stomping / stomping and lofting / lofting (“footwork”, “bodywork”, “jumping elements” and “work on the ground”, respectively). Thus, the house is an impromptu combination of fast steps with body work and movements on the court.

    House attracts primarily with its dynamics and special manner of performance, which is based on the ability to perceive and interpret music, as well as on the feelings and emotions of the dancers. The musical style of electro-house appeared on the basis of funk.

    Why attend house lessons?

    If you still don't know whether to choose this particular style for learning, then most likely you are not well informed about the benefits of practicing this dance.

    House is a very moving dance. Regular training will correct the figure, because it is very difficult to gain excess weight, being in constant and dynamic movement.

    As a rule, active training and regular physical exercises stretch and strengthen the muscles. And if you work at the office at the computer, then dancing is not only useful, but also vital, as it will save you from such consequences of sedentary work as blues, stiff muscles and weak muscles.

    Dance teaches you how to properly distribute energy. Throwing out the accumulated negativity and feelings, you will definitely cheer yourself up and relieve yourself of stress.

    We guarantee that you will get a lot of drive from fast movements, perky music and the feeling that you are one step closer to your goal.
