One of such occasions as seen in the background was an old man shoving aside a plus-sized fellow who appeared to be obstructing his view.
The plus-sized fellow took a different position after quietly leaving the area the old man stood.
@abctravelgreenbook who shared the lady's video on social media explained that the unique dance move is called Gwoka.
According to the media outlet, it is an improvised way in which enslaved Africans in Guadeloupe (an island in the northeastern edge of the Caribbean Sea) communicated in the face of 'unspeakable oppression.'

Social media reacts
"I love these so much but our culture is so rich that we don’t have to accredit everything to slavery. We were everywhere before that happened."
"Y'all remember that baby girl that was dancing at Disneyland in the Princess Tiana costume? They from the same people. This is beautiful."
"Oh my gosh! I have never learned of this form in Guadeloupe or seen it! It’s like what we know in the US that was called Juba. Thank you for sharing this video with me. At first i thought it was just you sharing dance videos with me cuz we both love them and then i saw the text. This woman is like a human light or a ribbon being twirled, i thought she was maybe 14 or so because of that energy, but if you look close she’s a grown woman, she’s just channeling a lot of life, a lotta lives actually."
"Idk why but I felt a way when I saw the old lady in the back wearing the pink dress dancing along with her cane. It was almost like a look of approval and it just touched me in a way i can't explain."
Shy girl shows of fine dance steps
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that a shy girl made to dance had caused a stir on street with her dance steps.
The video had started with the girl trying to flee the gathering but was quickly dragged back by kids and adults who thought otherwise.
As if resigning to fate, the girl backed them all and began with a left-arm dance move.
Feeling the vibe of the dance style, a lady joined behind her but stopped in her tracks as the girl quickly broke into a different dance move entirely - this time with her legs.
Her leg moves earned her the admiration of the gathered crowd on the street with people who were previously dancing stopping to give attention to a better dancer.
