Masquerade dancers are a feature of religious societies in many areas. Four main types of masquerader are identified by the roles they play: those who embody deities or nature spirits and to whom sacrifice is made to assure the fertility of land and people, those who embody the ancestral spirits, those who placate the spirits through their dance , and those who perform principally as entertainers. Animal masks are a common feature of masking societies throughout Africa. In Mali the Tyiwara spirit masqueraders of the Bambara people carry formalized carvings of antelopes and other wild animals, dancing in imitation of their movements to promote the fertility of land and community.

African dance refers mainly to the dance of Sub-Saharan Africa , and more appropriately African dances because of the many cultural differences in musical and movement styles. These dances must be viewed in close connection with Sub-Saharan African music traditions and Bantu cultivation of rhythm. African dance utilizes the concept of as well as total body articulation. Dances teach social patterns and values and help people work, mature, praise or criticize members of the community while celebrating festivals and funerals, competing, reciting history, proverbs and poetry; and to encounter gods.
Other cities have their own versions, and they serve a purpose in modern America — honoring traditions that were for centuries ignored and repressed — that a DanceEurope festival would not. What is African dance? Actually, the term is often applied to mean West African dance alone. That geographical area has a particular resonance: many slaves in America were taken from West Africa. Yet who thinks that everyone across West Africa dances alike?
