In Dominica, November 3rd is Discovery Day; we also got independence 25 years ago on that day. Everybody speaks Patois French on that day, dresses up in their costume, dances and brings out all the produce of Dominica.
'Quadrille' dancing started by the slaves mimicking white Europeans dancing and putting all the different bits together; every group has their own dance. You wear the national costume with a starched petticoat and headdress. A headdress and lots of jewellery is important for the part."
