The dance routine originated from the Tomioka Dance Club of Tomioka High School in Osaka Prefecture. The girls based their dance on Japan’s economic bubble of the 1980s, which explains the big hair and big clothes worn when performing the dance. They dance to the song “Dancing Hero” by Yoko Oginome.
The dance had been created as an entry for two national high school competitions, one of which they won, and the other had them declared as runners-up.
Their dance quickly gained popularity online through two YouTube videos of their performances where each earned over 5 million views. They later created a music video which currently has over 18 million views. Watch the the music video below for an idea on how complicated the dance routine actually is. JB
