House is a group of club dance styles primarily danced to house music that have roots in the clubs of Chicago but grew and evolved in the clubs of New York. The main styles include Footwork, Jacking, and Lofting. Like hip hop dance it was created by Black and Latino Americans and is often improvisational in nature. It emphasizes fast and complex foot oriented steps combined with fluid movements in the torso.

House dance incorporates movements from many other sources such as Capoeira, tap, jazz, bebop, and salsa. It includes a variety of techniques and sub-styles that include skating, stomping, and shuffling.

One of the primary elements in house dancing is a technique called jacking that came from Chicago and involves moving the torso forward and backward in a rippling motion, as if a wave were passing through it. This movement is repeated and sped up to match the beat of a song. This technique is the most important movement in house dancing because it is the foundation that initiates more complex movements and footwork. All footwork in house dancing is said to initiate from the way the jack moves the center of gravity through space. Other than footworkjacking, and lofting, house dance has grown to include other related styles such as voguewaacking, and hustle.

In house dancing there is an emphasis on the subtle rhythms and riffs of the music, and the footwork follows them closely. This is one of the main features that distinguishes house dancing from dancing that was done to disco before house emerged and current dancing that is done to electronic dance music as part of the rave culture.

Major contributors to the house dance scene in the US include Brian "Footwork" Green, Marjory Smarth, Shannon Selby, Caleaf Sellers, Ejoe Wilson, Terry Wright, Shannon Mabra, Tony 'Sekou' Williams, and Tony McGregor. Many others before them danced at places such as The Warehouse in Chicago, Paradise Garage and The Loft in NYC.
