Bahamian quadrille is a lively dance style, originating from the Bahamas, performed by mixed couples. The dance involves vigorous movements and foot stomping, and is typically danced to rake-and-scrape music. The dance usually occurs in a square or rectangle formation, in which mixed-gendered couples dance freely to the music. While there is no specific choreography in Bahamian quadrille, the males are expected to dance more vigorously and incorporate foot stopping.
