Dances in Haiti symbolize the connection as well as cohesion between the elements of this world and the hereafter. For example, the inspiring snake dance, which invites with its round-flowing movements to discover, purify and let go.
Dancing, along with singing and drumming, is a fundamental part of Haitian Vodou ritual ceremonies. Just as how the songs and the drums have a spiritual function and reflect a Creolized heritage, dance holds a similar value in Voodoo.
True to Haitian tradition, this dance invites you to let go. The powerful "cleansing ritual" appeals through drum sounds, chants and free movements to the forces of nature which in Haitian belief watch over the people.
