The encore performance has come as a result of widespread public demand, for the CDT to deliver another crowd pleasing concert that was missed by many nationals who were unable to secure tickets for the previously sold out event on 10th April, 2011.
Last month’s sold-out performance was given rave reviews by the media and supporters of the arts, who complemented the CDT for its outstanding costumes, music choices and professional on stage delivery of the carefully crafted dance numbers, that all depicted some element of the art-form through calypso, dancehall, soca and other genres.
Now fans will be thrilled to learn that the talented children of this dynamic group, will be putting their dancing shoes back on and are already preparing for an encore presentation of their sizzling 21st anniversary dance recital, this time being dubbed “JUST DANCE 2 – The Mother’s Day Edition”.
On Sunday, May 8th, lovers of the art form of dance will have one more opportunity to witness an explosion of colour, talent and creativity as CDT, along with guest performers, display a wide array of dance pieces aimed to stimulate, inspire and stir the dance spirit in all of us. According to Director Julie Martin, “JUST DANCE 2- The Mother’s Day Edition” will also feature special tributes to mothers by the dancers as well as by local singing sensation Range.
It is anticipated that their many fans will also put on their dancing shoes, and treat their mom to this spectacular event at the Sir Cecil Jacob’s Auditorium.
