    Cakewalk dance - in Enslavement Times

  • Gitte Daphne Lætgaard Tinning

    "CAKEWALK", It's origins in slavery, the cakewalk mocked the rich folks in the "Big House," and southern high-society. Bowing, bending and a high-stepping promenade were characteristic of the dance. In many instances the Cakewalk was performance, and even competition. The dance would be held at the master’s house on the plantation and he would serve as judge. The dance’s name comes from the cake that would be awarded to the winning couple, slavery, never forget, history, photo, black and white
