The workshop is being organized and facilitated by a recent graduate of the well- known and respected Edna manly College of Visual and Performing Arts Summer Dance School in Jamaica.
Instructor Kyla Brown has indicated that the workshop which is dubbed ‘Caribbean Artistry’ will be held at the Victoria Road Community Center from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm and 8:00 pm respectively, commencing on Monday 12th August to Friday 16th August 2013.
Brown said she is eager to share her experience with other local dancers and she added that after an intense, culturally filled four weeks of training in Jamaica, in July of this year, she has decided to bring her experiences home in the form of a “spectacular and fun-filled workshop.”
She promised that at the end of the workshop participants can expect to be more aware and knowledgeable of the existence and evolution of Caribbean and non-Caribbean dance forms practiced in the Caribbean region and will be more adept in using their bodies in creative dance forms such as Caribbean and Belizean Folk dance and techniques, Modern dance and techniques and choreography.
She was also thankful for the support that was provided her to travel to Jamaica for the summer program. Those deserving praise she said include the St. Kitts Investment Promotions Agency (SKIPA), Dwyer Astaphan, Ministry of Culture, Lennox Warner, Petro Caribe and Ms. Lorna Ava Henry who offered their support in financing and providing other assistance that contributed greatly to her training at the Edna Manley College of Visual and Performing Arts Summer Dance School 2013.
