Veronica Unlimited: What kind of dance is this

Was Veronica Unlimited a German or Dutch band? All members in the TV performances were German models, but the singing and playing was actually done by Dutch studio musicians. What makes this song historically important is that it could be the very first disco medley (in this case comprising Do you wanna dance, A hard day's night, Let me in, and Mr. Tambourine Man), which was perfected in the next decade by Stars on 45. The use of old Radio Veronica jingles throughout increased the nostalgia value.
