Dance Segment of Schools Arts Festival a Success
After lots of planning, practicing and preparations, the Division of Culture held the last leg of its activities at the National Schools Arts Festival, today Friday March 15th 2103 at the Arawak House of Culture.
Twenty – two Schools, both primary and secondary were participants in the Creative Dance segment, along with students and teachers who came to support their respective schools.
Mr. Raymond Lawrence, Chief Cultural Officer, emphasized that the show would definitely be one of excitement.
Mr. Lawrence said the creative dances performed by the students were choreographed by choreographers and teachers, however if they needed technical assistance the Cultural Division would assist.
He was proud to say that the materials produced from the teachers, students and choreographers for the creative dance segment, were excellent.
The Bioche Primary School was the first to showcase their dance with the title Afro Caribbean Expression.
They incorporated both modern and traditional dance in their choreography, which was in union with their theme.
The Bioche Community is well known for its contribution to culture, which could definitely be seen throughout their performance.
The convent Prepatory School’s title was African Pride which was displayed through their attire and dance.
They were a crowd favorite.
Interestingly the Mahaut Primary School was an eye catcher with its title puppy love.
Their dance was mainly traditional and included heel and toe one of our most popular dances.
The National Schools Art Festival is a bi annual event that is very beneficial to the growth and development of the arts and culture in Dominica.
