3rd Jamaica Dance Umbrella

The 3rd Jamaica Dance Umbrella (JDU), a festival of Jamaican dance, will take place on March 3-6, 2011, at the Philip Sherlock Centre Theatre at the University of the West Indies-Mona.

Yardedge reports: The festival features an eclectic combination of Jamaican dancers, choreographers and dance companies performing over a four day period. The festival “provides a forum for its participants to experience the “dance” that is Jamaica” and is a retrospective showcase of Jamaican dance under one roof.”

This year’s festival features the National Dance Theatre Company; Tony Wilson–The Company; L’Acadco United Caribbean Dance Force; Neila Ebanks with regional and international artists from Cayman Islands and Barbados, including Christopher Walker (Jamaica/USA); and Artist in Residence Kevin A. Ormsby (Toronto, Canada).

The Jamaica Dance Umbrella showcases local, regional and international artists. It presents programs in arts education, opportunities for greater exposure to the arts for audiences, and new opportunities for independent choreographers and companies to show their work.
