Open Access Presidential Scholars Thesis
Kathleen Kerr, advisor
Dance--Spain; Dance--Latin America;
Two years ago I had the opportunity to live and travel in Spain. Because I participate in and enjoy international dance, I sought to identify the Spanish culture through dance. Throughout my literature review I continued this identification process by looking at the history of Spain, the functions of dance in the society, the regional variations in dance and traditional costume, the dance of the Roman Catholic Church of Spain, and finally the influence Spain has had on dance in Spanish America.
