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 thattion, 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. In house dancing there is an emphasis on the subtle rhythms and riffs of the music, and the footwork follows them closely.
