Daisy Wouters – Warming up inspired by Jamaican Dancehall
Jamaican dancehall is an urban dance style that originated in Kingston (JA). The music and the dance moves are a direct expression of the daily life in Jamaica. Daisy Wouters chose certain existing dancehall moves to accompany the theme of the night: Smile at the obstacle for it is a bridge. #HappyFeet #GiveDemARun #RowDiBoat #ShadySquad At the end of 2012, Daisy Wouters returned to Belgium and started teaching Jamaican dancehall classes and organizing dance workshops with guest teachers. In 2017, she joined the RAW Dancehall team and together they breathed new life into the Belgian Dancehall Queen competition.
