In the US I guess the closest thing to a traditional dance would be square dance.

It is hard to pinpoint anything which would be considered "traditional" in terms of dance here in the US, and our extremely diverse culture history may account for a lot that. As another poster mentioned, square dancing comes to mind. Everyone here seems to know the "Electric Slide" (a country line dance), and here in North Carolina, "Shag" is pretty popular. A lot of this seems a bit more popular in the South though. But as far as a distinct dance technique that is unique to our culture such as Irish or African or Russian Folk, it is difficult to really pick a specific one that uniquely represents our nation as a whole. (This is not to say Americans can't dance though!!)
