ParaPara is a style of dance that originated in Japan. It is speculated that it started in the 1970's, but the birth of what we call ParaPara today was really in the 1990's.

ParaPara is usually danced to a genre of music called Eurobeat, which is manufactured in Italy, and sold in Japan.

Specific songs have their own specific routines. There can be one or more routine for a song, depending on how many clubs have put out a new choreography. ParaPara dancers, or Paralists, can make up their own choreography to songs as well.

ParaPara is usually danced with the arms, and the feet movements are usually simple side steps, however, there are complicated foot routines for some songs.

ParaPara comes in "booms". It gets really popular for a while, but then dies down for a little while, then comes back popular again.
I just learned a new ParaPara routine from Velfarre: Pride by Dave!

Oh man, the US is having a HUGE ParaPara boom!

Look around a club or university hall of residence and you will notice these Para Para people generally cannot stand without the aid of a chair or bar to prop themselves up on.
