Latin dance originated from South and Central America. It incorporates a lot of moving the body which includes romantic steps with a focus on hip movements. Generally, the wardrobe consists of sensual pieces mostly bodycons with ruffles, fringes, or glitter.The Ghost dance on the other hand, is a spiritual dance that creates Christian doctrine. The focus is more on the feet movements/ stomping. The Ghost dance consists of group dancing, in order to speak to spirits/ghosts. Both come from cultural religion. Both are self expression and rhythm dances. Both their roots are deep and geographically far reaching.
