 In this volume, Professor Margaret Musmon explores the history of dance on the islands of the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Cuba and in the South American countries of Argentina and Brazil.

This volume includes European, African, and Creole influences on dance and describes the popular celebration of Carnival (Karnival) in detail. The role of religion takes on special significance in many of the dances highlighted in Latin and Caribbean Dance, from Catholicism to voodoo. Politics also played a definitive role in shaping and popularizing these dances.
