Creative dance is on tap on two Saturdays, 15 and 22 October, when Cayman native Melissa McField returns to the Island to teach a jazz ballet workshop with Kirk Rowe, founder and dance director of KRI Performing Arts School.
McField is a graduate of the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts in Jamaica. She is a lecturer at Ardenne High School and is the rehearsal director of L’Acadco Dance Company, also in Jamaica.
The Jazz Ballet Creative Dance workshops have been organised by the non-profit New Self-Help Community Foundation, which aims to help teenagers develop a sense of self-worth, independence and community spirit.
The workshops will be held from 11am-2pm at the George Town Primary School Hall. They are free to individuals ages 10 to 25.
“The Foundation is pleased to partner with the Ministry of Health, Environment, Youth Sports and Culture, the George Town Primary School and local dance expertise to promote the positive energies of the youth of Cayman,” says JC Connor, CEO of New Self Help Community Foundation. “The young participants … will be invigorated and energised with the combination of teaching and learning styles of these talented instructors.”
