Subject: RE: What's the difference between calypso and reggae?
I was surprised to hear the comparison between reggae and polka. Could be; I don't really know polka. But from a dancer's point of view Reggae is basically skipping, except that you skip in place (like running in place), and you kind of reverse the movements, as if you were using skipping to back away.
