Dance artists from the 80s
Disco died in the 70s and dance music went underground to morph into house and hiNRG. New wave and punk styles had some dance off shoots as pop music embraced dance music in many forms.
Current dance artists setting trends

Divas are female singers with big voices. They sing the classic dance anthems that everyone lives for.
