Euro-trance is any "trance"-like European import into the American dance music market, especially those recorded in Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium.
 Music styles considered "Euro-trance"
 Dream house
Dream house is a form of house music that peaked prominently on the international dance scene between 1995 and 1997. It is not the best music for physical dancing, rather it was more of a "dance with your mind" music style. Dream house is also sometimes called dream trance.
 Progressive trance
Progressive trance (130 bpm+) & Euro progressive house (129 bpm or less). It's almost the same music style since about 2000, that's why many Europeans simply call it "Progressive". Well-known artists are: ATB, Blank & Jones, Alice DeeJay, Sash!, Tiësto, Armin Van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Push, Paul Van Dyk, Above & Beyond, EX-PLOSION, Markus Schulz, Cressida, Deepsky, Manny Ward, and Lost Tribe. Progressive trance also combines many other mid / late 90s music styles, with more notable Epic Trance and Orbis Trance.
 Vocal trance
Vocal trance: From 1997-2003, this music style was simply progressive trance with vocals. It dominated by German-based productions, spread all over Europe because of Viva, Onyx and MTV2 Pop satellite music channels. TMF Belgium/Holland (and JIM Belgium during the 00s) followed the "hype", by promoting their own vocal trance productions, that became more commercially successful in the UK and Spain. UK also has a share of the vocal trance scene, but more at an underground level. Vocal Trance artists include: 4 Strings, ATB, Mic-Chek, Ian Van Dahl, Lasgo, Sylver, Milk Inc, DJ Sammy, Santamaria, Alice Deejay, Fragma, Sash!, Orion Too, Do, DJ Soroush S.G Track, Dee Dee, Astroline, Kate Ryan, Kelly Llorenna, Flip & Fill, and Jessy De Smet.
 Uplifting trance
Uplifting trance, often synonymous with epic trance, anthem trance, emotional trance, or euphoric trance is a large sub-genre of trance. The name, which emerged in the wake of progressive trance in 1997, is derived from the feeling which listeners claim to get (often described as a "rush"). The genre, which originated in Germany, is massively popular in the trance scene, and is one of the dominant forms of dance music worldwide. Historically it is related to the emergence of psytrance and the two styles influenced each other. Typical examples of artists of this music style are: Andy Blueman, Aly & Fila, Sean Tyas, Soundlift, Arctic Moon, and Ronny K, who focus particularly on Uplifting Trance, and Ferry Corsten, Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren and Above & Beyond who include Uplifting in their broader repertoire.
 Modern Euro-trance music
Most modern Euro-trance songs often have hard trance beats and basslines. In rare occasions, hardstyle beats and basslines are added into Euro-trance songs.
