Hard dance is an umbrella term that refers to a group of Hard electronic dance genres which aren't hard enough to be classified as hardcore. The term usually includes genres such as Hard House, Hard NRG, Hard Trance, and Hardstyle. The BPM for these genres is typically 140-180BPM, with a 4/4 rhythm (specifically four-on-the-floor).
It is not uncommon for the term "hard dance" to be associated with other electronic dance genres such as hardcore and Psytrance. This, however, is a matter of opinion. Hard dance is typically an underground musical movement, one which breaks away from the British cheeseboard of Popular Dance music
