Africa to Caribbean Dance

Dance is deeply emended into black culture by tradition. Two sorts of dance evolved as cultures developed: social dances on occasions that celebrated births, commemorated deaths, and marked special events in between; and magical or religious dances to ask the gods to end a famine, to provide rain, or to cure the sick. As the dance migrated to the Caribbean it was often seen as a form of celebration.
