Sponsored by The Bahamas’s Ministry of Youth, Sport and Culture, the E. Clement Bethel National Arts Festival—an annual national competition for music, dance, art and drama for ages 2 to adults—is presently underway. The Bahamas Weekly reports:
Grace, team effort and defying gravity are essential elements of the artistry that is dance, which takes place now at the annual E. Clement Bethel National Arts Festival. During the festival this week, school students of New Providence will show their learned skills and compete at the Winston V. Saunders Theatre of the Dundas Centre for the Performing Arts. Well-known dance instructor Lawrence Carroll gives pointers at the end to further instruct and inspire. The festival had already adjudicated music and drama in New Providence, and performances in Andros and Abaco. It will continue to review performing arts around The Bahamas through the end of May.
