This project was to support a local dance school in Antigua with the delivery of a 4 week summer programme for children between the ages 7 to 18. The primary purpose of the programme was to provide an activity during the summer school break that would be fun and allow the children to express themselves through the art of dance.
The instructors were recruited via a rigorous selection process from Jamaica and the UK. The instructors covered a range of dance styles such as contemporary, hip hop, stomp and Caribbean folk.
The students were from various backgrounds with a few visiting from other islands. In the first week some students experienced alienation and conflict. However this was resolved with the instructors joining the students for lunch each day and encouraging inclusion amongst the groups.
The programme concluded with a full concert featuring all the dances the students learnt over the 4 weeks including guest performance by the Shiva Dance Troupe. The audience comprised of parents, family, local business sponsors and dignitaries.
