The World Reggae Dance Championship international final in Jamaica is set for August 2014. This month, the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC) is hosting a series of regional development workshops as it gears up for the Championship. [Entries for the competition are still being accepted; see more information in the link below.]
These preliminary workshops, being held in May, are in an effort to improve the quality of performances in the championship. “The workshop initiative is expected to improve this year’s entries as well as reggae dance in Jamaica as the regional workshops across the island are open to amateurs, semi-professional and professional dancers,” said Juliet Cowan-Morgan, competition coordinator.
The workshops are scheduled for tomorrow at the Ocean Village Shopping Centre, St Ann; Friday at the Ranny Williams Entertainment Centre, and Saturday at the St Elizabeth Technical High School, starting at 12:30 p.m. each day. The workshop will be led by dance trainer Orville ‘Expressionz’ Hall, with a registration cost of $1,000 per group.
Cowan-Morgan also noted that entries for the competition are still being accepted, and while groups can register at the elimination shows, they are encouraged to submit by Friday, May 30, 2014.
Entry forms are available online at www.jcdc.gov.jm, at the JCDC head office, 3-5 Phoenix Avenue, Kingston 10 and all JCDC parish offices islandwide.
