Template:Infobox Music genre Dance-pop (or dance pop) is dance-oriented pop music that developed from post-disco, beginning in the early 1980s.


Complete with pounding, dance club upbeats and catchy melodies, the songs of this music are fully-formed and more influenced by pop song structure than pure dance music.[1] Dance-pop songs are often primarily created by record producers, who then select a singer to perform the song.[1] A notable dance-pop production team in the 1980s and 1990s were Stock, Aitken and Waterman,[2] who sculpted polished Hi-NRG production for the likes of Kylie Minogue, Rick Astley and Bananarama. Other commercially successful dance-pop musicians include Paula Abdul, Madonna,[1] Janet Jackson,[1] Jody Watley,[3] The Spice Girls, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears Jennifer Lopez, and more recently, Lady Gaga and Ke$ha. Dance-pop has often been the music of boy bands and girl groups (e.g. Mel & Kim).[4]
