So you think Goths can't dance?

Dancing seems all but a Goth's thing. But if you go to the right clubs and put on the right music, you'll find out that goth do dance and much! Both boys and girls!

Gothic Bellydance for example is becoming more and more a popular "sport" among Goths girls. The term "gothic bellydancing" has even got a full wikipedia page (click HERE to read it)

The phenomenon of Gothic Bellydance or Raks Gothique is a multitude of poetic visions born out of the Goth, or Gothic, subculture, music, imagery and fashion, and expressed in the language of Bellydance.

Gothic Bellydance incorporates many Bellydance styles and motifs: Cabaret, Tribal Fusion, modern dance, echoes of Gypsy dance, Flamenco, Asian, and Indian dance – all called to express the darkness of the unknown, and the mysteries of life, death, and eternity that have inspired Goth philosophies and lifestyles.






Gothic industrial dancing is also very popular. Especially among cyber goths.




Here I present you a funny guide on the stereotypical way goth usually dance --> HOW TO DANCE GOTHIC
