Isiah Nicholas

The John-Cunu Dance



The john-cunu dance is a dance that is usually performed at Christmas time in the Caribbean and some parts of Central America.
The dance is a lot of fun to watch. The dancers, usually dance from house to house for a small fee.
Some say that the dance was a dance that was performed on the sugar plantation, by the slaves, during their free time.
The slaves would dress up like their masters and make fun of them, while dancing to the beating of drums.
