Caribbean and Atlantic Diaspora Dance

University of Illinois Press

This chapter examines Caribbean dance in the context of tourism and globalization. In particular, it looks at the interaction between tourism enterprises and dance genres, dance artists, and island governments as well as its implications for cultural and economic globalization. After providing an overview of human and natural resources available on the Caribbean islands and how they have been developed toward tourism, the chapter discusses the integration of Caribbean dance and music making into regional development as aids to differing types of tourist planning. It then considers the globalization of Caribbean dances such as merengue, mambo, salsa, and reggae and how Caribbean sacred dance, concert dance, and popular dance fare within cultural globalization or homogenizing trends, local market structures and tourism. It also analyzes the impact of globalization on Caribbean dancers and the local and global tensions brought on by globalization as they relate to Caribbean dance and tourism. The chapter concludes by offering suggestions for confronting pressures from cultural and economic globalization.

Keywords:   tourism, Caribbean dance, globalization, Caribbean islands, regional development, tourist planning, sacred dance, concert dance, popular dance, Caribbean dancers
