CNCF going to Scotland

The Cayman National Cultural Foundation is very excited about a recent invitation for a contingent of its young dancers to perform at the acclaimed Aberdeen International Youth Festival 2005, in Scotland.

To this end, the Cultural Foundation is building a company of 20 dancers-with 10 already selected from their Young-at-Arts company, kindly part-sponsored by Walkers-and 10 more to be chosen at an audition upcoming on Saturday, 15 January and Sunday 16th, from 11am- 3pm at Kings Sports Centre.

The Aberdeen Youth Festival is perhaps the premier youth arts festival, and for the Cayman team it promises to be an unforgettable international cultural experience, states a press release.

All dancers, age 25 or younger who wish to audition for this exceptional opportunity should contact the CNCF on 949-5477 for more details, or come visit us on the third floor of Elizabethan Square.

CNCF has invited five local and four overseas choreographers to work with the performers on a total of nine new dances that it hopes will be vibrant and colourful, with a high standard of artistry.

Dance Cayman will also feature in the opening parade, wearing spectacular carnival costumes designed by CNCF Artistic Director, Henry Muttoo.

The Cultural Foundation believes that this is a wonderful opportunity for talented young Caymanians to visit and experience the culture of other countries, as well as to share their own work and present a positive image of Cayman abroad.

Sponsorship is paramount to the actualization of Cayman’s participation in the festival, so the CNCF urges local businesses to get involved and enjoy the resulting international publicity.

A dance can be sponsored for $6,000 or any amount will be gratefully accepted towards their attendance. For more information, contact Roberta on 949-5477 or email [email protected].
