Litefeet, the musical genre, features 100-BPM tracks that are usually instrumental in nature or have very limited repetitive vocalizations. Litefeet, the dance style, features an acrobatic, upbeat mix of arm and leg movements, jumps and spins, and usually uses shoes, hats or other wearable objects as props. The style emerged from Harlem and bronx street dancers, and can be commonly found in the Subway by groups of performers busking around the train poles.
For the upcoming documentary Litefeet — Sound of the Subway, Fact TV investigates the music genre and dance style, as well as dig into the NYPD crackdown on the dancers, and the flourishing scene surrounding the movement.
