INFORMATION ABOUT ADMIRAL BAILEY
From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Admiral_Bailey
"Admiral Bailey (born Glendon Bailey, Kingston, Jamaica) is a Jamaican dancehall deejay who enjoyed his greatest success between the mid-1980s and the early 1990s. He now lives in Jamaica. He has been described as "the hottest dancehall star of the late 1980s".[1]

 Career

Bailey had worked on U-Roy's King Sturgav Hi-Fi sound system and was taken to King Jammy's studio in Waterhouse by Josey Wales.[2] He started a string of hits with a duet with Chaka Demus, "One Scotch, One Bourbon, One Beer", which was followed by "Politician" (based on Larry Marshall's 1969 hit "Throw Me Corn"), "Chatty Chatty Mouth", "Ballot Box" (with Josey Wales) and, in 1987, the slack "Punaany" (with a lyric that included "Gimme Punaany, Want punaany, Any punaany is the same punaany"), which was initially banned from radio play until it was re-recorded with a less offensive lyric, retitled "Healthy Body".[2] His debut album, Kill Them With It, was released in 1987 and he went on to record for producers such as Papa Biggy and Donovan Germain. He recorded further for Penthouse Records ("Help") in 1990 and Bobby Digital ("Ah Nuh Sin") in 1991. In 1993, he began working with Jammy again. In the 1990s he became known as a "clean" deejay, eschewing the slackness of many of his contemporaries.[1] He recorded with Byron Lee on some of the latter's big soca hits, and even starred in television commercials for banks.[1]"...

BONUS EXCERPT ABOUT THE DANCEHALL DANCE "THE BUTTERFLY"
From https://jamaica-gleaner.com/article/entertainment/20181112/dancehall-queens-legacy-continues "Dancehall Queens - The legacy continues" by Stephanie Lyew, November 11, 2018
""Admiral Bailey gave all the instructions for the dance move called the 'butterfly' that Carlene Smith is credited for popularising in 1992. Anyone who knows the '90s dancehall track Butterfly will not be able to resist mouthing the lyrics as they attempt the dance. But according to Smith, who is also dubbed the first dancehall queen in Jamaica, not many persons understand what it truly means to do the 'Butterfly': "A lot of persons still have not got the form for the dance move correct."….
-snip-
Here's information about Carlene Smith from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlene_Smith
"Carlene Smith is Jamaica's first Dancehall Queen.[1] She was crowned Dancehall Queen in 1992 after she and her crew competed against well known models in Jamaica. There had been other Dancehall Queens before her but she started the national spotlight on a reign that was usually isolated to the Jamaican garrisons.[2][3]

[…]

Dance career

Smith can be seen in the 1992 music video for the Chaka Demus & Pliers song Murder She Wrote, wearing a gold outfit and white wig. She was also featured on other music videos before and after her appearance on the Dancehall video "Murder She Wrote".[5]

Smith was also featured in the 1997 edition of Vibes magazine on the bottom of Page 52. Where she was credited for the International Butterfly Dance”…

From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_She_Wrote_(song)
"Murder She Wrote" is a song by Chaka Demus & Pliers, from their 1993 album Tease Me. It was first released as a single in 1992 and again in late 1993, reaching number 27 on the UK Singles Chart in early 1994.[3] The music to the song is based on the Maytals' 1966 song "Bam Bam", while the lyrics discuss abortion (as revealed in the third verse). Two music videos were made, one with Dancehall Queen Carlene Smith, and one without. The videos cost $50,000 and $2,500 respectively to produce.[4]"...

Some of the Dancehall dance moves that are mentioned in these quotes are featured in YouTube videos that are embedded in other posts in this pancocojams series.

Excerpt #1

From https://theboombox.com/90s-dances-kid-n-play-running-man/ Do You Remember These Famous 90s' Moves, published by Sharee Hereford, March 27, 2018 
"
The Butterfly
"Who remembers watching one of Patra's music videos and trying hard to imitate her while she did the Butterfly?

Reggae and Dancehall had a big impact on pop culture in the 90s. The Butterfly not only became popular within those genres, it crossed over and many hip-hop and R&B artists incorporated the dance into their performances.

[...]

The Bogle

Before Ciara was doing the matrix dance, it was The Bogle that made people bend as far back as they could go. While the actual dance is easy, it was always how far one could bend back that garnered the cheers from a crowd.

The Heel Toe

This is a dance that you need some coordination to execute properly otherwise you could find yourself on the floor. The Heel Toe was a dance that was done to hip-hop and reggae songs.

The Tootsee Roll

"Cotton candy, sweet and low, let me see that tootsie roll." It was in 1994 that 69 boyz publicly declared that the Butterfly dance was now old and the new dance was the Tootsee roll. There wasn't a block party, barbecue, or house party that didn't drop this song when it was hot."...

..."Lean Back"

"Terror Squad Featuring Fat Joe and Remy Ma

Released: 2004

Fat Joe and Remy Ma had everyone leaning in the summer of 2004 with their dance anthem “Lean Back.” Inspired by the dancehall move the Rockaway, the dance allows you to just simply cross your arms and sway side to side while leaning back. The Scott Storch-produced banger reigned at the apex of the Billboard Hot 100 chart for three consecutive weeks in August of 2004."...

Excerpt #4
From 
https://www.redbull.com/us-en/dys-street-dance-styles-101 [no author or publishing date given, retrieved on May 18, 2022]
..."Bone Breaking

Bone-Breaking or FlexN is a style of dance based on exactly what the title suggests. It started in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, New York and is characterized by rhythmic contortionist movements and unreal levels of flexibility. The dance is often performed shirtless to show off the complexities of the moves. It also has an interpretative style and flowing, liquid rhythms that make it unique.

Unlike other street dance styles originating in the United States, Bone-Breaking did not come from hip-hop dance, funk music, or hip-hop culture. It evolved from a Jamaican style of street dance called Bruk-up. The dance roots are traced back to dancehall and a reggae style of animation. When it emerged from Jamaican dancehalls in Brooklyn, it upended the dance world"

Excerpt #5
From 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLuYj9ZKxd4  Bruk Up origins (The movement) pt.1, published by LBXdancers, April 28, 2011 [video summary] "The Bruck Up style was founded in Jamaica nd moved to NY around the yr 94'.

Bruck Up was founded by the man dancing in this named Bruck Up (George Adams)... it has its own interpretation of animation (jamaican flavored) and storytelling.... with trademark moves such as the crabwalk, the shoulder pop, and many many more. Bruk Up (the original style) also has more looser movements tht look similar to Shotta dancing. Bruck Up in the current days incorporated waving, gliding, and bone breaking into the style for transitional purposes. The style has gradually evolved since then.."

7. Meta4ce ODOT, 2022
"This looks like Oakland Turf Dancing/Locking/New Orleans dance. Not saying it was influenced by it, but y'all need to stop saying it's that original when there were already ongoing dance styles in the US with these type moves: 20+ years before 1994."

"Oakkand" probably refers to Oakland, California.

Tootsee Roll

Song: 69 Boyz "Tootsee Roll" (1994)

1994 was the year of major musical breakthroughs: Nas dropped Illmatic, Kurt Cobain was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Aaliyah, Brandy, and Usher all dropped their debut albums, and a crew from Florida dropped one of the biggest summertime hits of all time, coined after a popular piece of candy.

Pre-90s babies can still remember the magnitude of the Tootsee Roll, which appeared on the group's platinum-selling debut album 199Quad. The Miami bass jam was the brainchild of the young crew of eight... Though people mainly consider the dance to be the leg-rolling move, they forget it's an entire line dance too, equipped with commands, making it a former favorite for college parties.

The opening rap of the song starts off with, "I don't know what you've been told, it ain't the butterfly it's the tootsee roll," so no one got the dances twisted (even though they're pretty much the same thing). 199Quad was re-released in 2006, and to this day "Tootsee Roll" is hailed as a '90s cult favorite.

[...]

Flap Your Wings

Song: Nelly "Flap Your Wings" (2004)

In the opening line to 1994's "Tootsie Roll" by the 69 Boyz, Thrill Da Playa raps, "The butterfly, uh-uh that's old! Let me see ya tootsie roll!" Fast-forward to 2004 and you have Nelly who can now pretty much throw that same shade to the Tootsie Roll, thanks to his reinvention of the dance called Flap Your Wings. The dance move serves as another cousin of the Butterfly, where you basically drop and roll your legs together. Besides being a club favorite, the single became the No. 1 record in the UK the same year it came out.
-snip-
"The Butterfly" is a Jamaican Dancehall dance move. 

I added italics  to highlight these words.

**** HOW "THE WILLIE BOUNCE DANCE" GOT ITS NAME Excerpt #1 From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willie_Haggart
"William Augustus Moore (14 March 1961 - 18 April 2001), also known as The Chief Of Staff, was believed to have been an underworld kingpin, and the reputed leader of the Black Roses Crew.[3] Because of his nature, as a young man he was given the nickname "Willie Haggart", a patois corruption of "hog-heart".[4]

[…]

Black Roses Crew

Around the early 1990s, Haggart was invited by Bogle to join his entertainment/party crew Roses which made him popular within the dancehall community worldwide. The 'Willie Bounce' dance move was created and named in his honour."...

INFORMATION ABOUT ELEPHANT MAN From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elephant_Man_(musician) "Oneal Bryan,[1] better known by his stage name Elephant Man is a Jamaican dancehall musician and singer.[Born 11 September 1975; Seaview Gardens, Kingston, Jamaica

Career

He started out his musical career in 1995 as a member of the Scare Dem Crew, later continuing as a solo artist. He was later characterised for several trademarks, such as his dyed yellow-orange hair, his unique low-key voice, and his stage performance, which included jumping and running, or even climbing on stage props and monitors.[citation needed] His acoustic trademark is a low, raspy grumble singing voice and light lisp.

Bryan had his first international recognition when he and Puma settled a contract for using his single "All Out" for its Olympics commercial campaign in 2004.

His song "Willie Bounce" appeared on several mixtapes in early 2006. It used the first few bars from "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor. "Willie Bounce" has been described as one of Elephant Man's most recognizable songs, with the corresponding dance still enjoying popularity as of 2015.[2]"...
