Black Dancers Performing a Dance Entitled "Le Cake-Walk". By the 1890's, the "Cakewalk" was the hottest dance in the United States... soon to catch on when exported to Europe. In 1892 the first Cakewalk contest was held in a New York ballroom. As detailed by Wayne Chapman, Associate Professor of Theatre Arts, University of Arkansas at Little Rock, the dance most certainly found its roots in "The Chalk Line Walk" as it was originally known, popular in the Southern plantations as early as 1850. It is believed to have originated in Florida among African American slaves.
