10 Easy To Follow Dancehall Steps from 2014

In this post we are sharing 10 of the hottest dancehall steps from 2014. All steps are created by Jamaicans and are more or less easy to follow.


With the years dancehall as a dance has evolved a lot. Steps are getting more complex and are more difficult to follow. This is just natural development as dancers always reach for more. Some people say dancehall has lost its spirit because it started out as a social dance made for everybody. It still is, as Bogle said „Everybody can dance, but not everybody is a dancer“. In its beginnings dancehall steps were made of 2 to 4 counts and easy to follow. Nowadays steps can have up to 16 counts and are more complex. But there are still dancehall steps which can be followed easily and performed by everybody.


Enjoy the following dancehall steps from 2014 created by recognized Jamaican Dancehall dancers.

1. Hot Rice  by  Ovamarz

Overmarz is back! After a longer dance break pioneer Dancehall dancer Overmarz created the dancehall step „Hot Rice“ in 2014. The step went straight to top and is one of the most famous steps in 2014 and 2015. There are 3 songs featuring this steps:


“Hot Rice” – Ovamarz feat. Faydra (2015)
“Hot Rice” – Mr. Vegas & Ovamarz (2015)
“Hot Rice” – Voicemail feat Ovamarz (2015)




2. Do The Right Thing by Mundo Ravers

The story of Mundo Ravers is tragic. He was suffering from a kidney disease since 2007, but never gave up on dancing. He created the step „Do The Right Thing“ and Elephant Man did a song to it. He passed away in January 2015 just after creating the step and shooting the music video with Elephant Man.

3. Garling by Elite Team

I really like the flow of the step „Garling“ created by Elite Team. It is energetic as most of the Elite Team steps but also smooth and groovy.




4. Fix It  by  Shelly Belly


Shelly Belly another Dancehall pioneer dancer, he danced together with one of Jamaica’s greatest dancers Bogle. Since the year 2000 Shelly Belly has created many famous steps, e.g. Luggo Luggo, 90s Rock, Cowfoot and many more. In 2014 he created the dancehall step „Fix It“.


Also check the music video for the step Shelly Belly & Ashtallama – Fix Music




5. Greetingz  by BG Dancerz

I really like the positiveness and energy of the ‚Greetingz‘ steps by the BG Dancerz. You may not see its positive vibe in the following demonstration video because the step is performed on a „darker“ song, but watch this video and I think you will get what I mean. Saying hello to each other while dancing, that’s a positive feeling.




6. Summer Jam  by  Craig Black Eagle

The step of the summer 2014, but it is still fresh. ‚Summer Jam‘ created by Craig Black Eagle. The step is easy to follow, but it has to be performed with flow and style to tweak it.


The song ‚Hot Spot‘ from I-Octane goes very well with the step. The song underlines its summery and easy flow. Check this choreography created by Jr Black Eagle.




7. Godzilla  by  Trice Rifical

‚Godzilla‘ is an energetic step inspired from gorilla movements. The step was created by Trice from Rifical Team.



8. Shub Dem Away  by  Rifical Team

Another step by Rifical Team ‚Shub Dem Away‘, this step is much smoother and more relaxed than ‚Godzilla‘. Shub dem way means turn somebody or something away …  „all the money problems and stress away“ … You can find similar expressions a lot in the Jamaican language usage e.g. „Tek Weh Yuhself“, „Go Away“.


The song „Shub Dem Away“ is from QQ.




9. Bazzle  by  Overload Skankaz

Bazzle is a dancehall step created by Overload Skankaz. It is a step of the Huxxx steps series they worked out in 2014.
