Punta is a folk dance with a Garifuna heritage. It is all in the hips with some serious booty shaking. Both men and women dance it. It could be a predecessor to hip-hop and reggaeton dancing. It’s pretty cool really. “Punta” is a reference to Punta Gorda, Roatan, Honduras where the Garifuna people were exiled from St. Vincent by the British in 1797.
