Bele Dancing

Bele is a Dominican cultural dance which is inspired by African dances and highlights the origins of most of the Caribbean population. It is probably my favorite local dance because it is fun, sexy and allows for great audience interaction. It is also drum driven and drumming just has an irresistible effect on me.

This is the Paix Bouche Cultural Group performing their bele in the final of the 2009 Cultural Finals in Grand Bay.
