  • the oldest Creole dance from Dominica
    • This needs some serious explicitation
  • and is said to be almost purely African in origin, reflecting influences from African fertility dances. This should be sourced, or expanded on. "is said" is very weasely.
  • the responsorial chorus
    • Serious jargon there

I've linked responsorial. I agree on the first two points, and I think I'll be able to expand on them in the nearish future - this site is the source for both claims, and doesn't give a lot of detail. (it does jive with what I recall reading in a more authoritative source that I don't have access to right now) Tuf-Kat 04:20, 11 June 2006 (UTC)
The first point is mostly about giving some definition of "creole dance" (though a wikilink would be ideal.) Circeus 04:25, 11 June 2006 (UTC)
Oh okay. I can't come up with a good wording though -- the source is too vague to be sure what is meant. I'll see what I can find to clarify. Tuf-Kat 06:08, 11 June 2006 (UTC)
