You may think there are way too many genres of dance music to keep a record of in an organized fashion, but The Evolution of Western Dance Music Infographic does exactly that.

This infographic definitely covers all the bases as it starts in the 1800s and finishes off in present times. Starting off with blues and jazz as the most popular dance music of the 1950s, the infographic goes on to include soul, funk, disco, synth pop, house, and electric; dubstep is the last, and most recent of dance genres.

Check out this wildly inventive infographic as it literally weaves its way around the world of music, one dance at a time.

Implications - Consumers look for artwork they can relate to on a personal level. No longer interested in designs that only focus on aesthetics, shoppers are attracted to ones they can connect to intimately. Companies could focus on this desire for a greater connection in order to increase their appeal on the market.
