Do You Have Disco Fever?

Disco emerged in the 1970s, specifically in the Black community. It served as an opportunity for Blacks to express themselves. It also added diversity to nightclubs as well as dance scenes. Popular styles during this time were big hair and flared pants. New York played a huge part in the development of Disco in this time. Dance and nightclubs had a huge Black audience due to the New Negro Movement. This was a big deal for the Black community, they were able to show and share their talents and skills with others.
