The 80's was one of the greatest decades for dance and music. MTV (Music Television) was first launched in 1981 and thus music videos become a huge part of pop culture. In this decade, a huge amount of sub-genres emerged from the expansion of rising genres such as late disco, rock, metal, pop, techno and early hip hop at the time. Even the dance moves of this decade have spawned sub versions of their own. Many of the dance moves of this decade were made by artists or named after other things such as animals or cartoons.
