Mardi Gras “The Saints” Line Dance How To


Do you wish to kick up your heals at Mardi Gras? Great jazz music calls out to be danced to. So for Mardi Gras this yr I did a line dance to the signature track “When the Saints go Marching in”, or “The Saints” for brief.

Brief historical past of Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras dates again in time to the Middle Ages. It originated because the spring and fertility festivals of Saturnalia and Lupercalia. With the arrival of the Christian religion, the pageant was re-purposed as Carnival (from epiphany to lent), then in America as Mardi Gras (a someday occasion the Tuesday earlier than lent), in preparation of the abstinence of Lent.

“The Saints” or “When the Saints Go Marching In” History

Mardi Gras is widely known by parades, masks, beads, and nice jazz. ‘When the Saints Go Marching In’, is unofficially the theme track for Mardi Gras in New Orleans. This conventional black non secular track was made well-known by Loui Armstrong in 1938. It continues to be performed within the French quarter of New Orleans. It is the right tune to do a Mardi Gras “The Saints” Line dance.
