The Cayman Islands National Dance
Company, Dance Unlimited staged three two-hour performances of their latest
show D=E2 C (which stands for dance equals energy times creativity) on
9, 14 and 16 May.
Held at the Harquail Theatre, the
company’s mini recital on Sunday, 9 May was performed by young dancer’s ages
three to seven years old. The remaining performances showcased the dancing of
the troupe’s older dancers.
In total, 165 dancers took to the
stage in the shows that sought to evoke the energy and excitement of dance in
all its various forms.
According to the show’s artistic
director, Lorna Reid, “[The shows] went well and where an exciting climax to
another dance season.
“It is my hope that what we do in
the Cayman Islands National Dance Company and school will energise not just us
but will stimulate others to see dance as a viable means of exercising and
being creative and expressing themselves without words,” she said.
The company’s founder devised the
performances along with the assistant artistic director and manager, Jessica
Eden, who choreographed most of the pieces for the adult performers.
Anita Gough, the company’s principal, choreographed
most of the pieces in the mini recital.
