Dancing for a cause

Miss Jackie’s dancers have performed numerous recitals, including Christmas shows at Camana Bay.

Miss Jackie’s School of Dance, the oldest dance school in Cayman, is celebrating 46 years of teaching dance in the Cayman Islands. The company, along with some of the junior members of the school, has been rehearsing in earnest for its two magical shows on Saturday.

Titled ‘Dancing for a Cause’, the production is designed to not just bring Christmas cheer to the audience – it is also a fundraising initiative for Father Ho Lung’s Missionaries of the Poor. The Catholic priest’s organisation in Jamaica ministers to the poor and vulnerable and is well-known throughout the Caribbean.

The school has a number of charities for which it raises money. In October, dancers were seen at Jasmine’s ‘Voices around the World’ and at the end of November, they performed at the Pink Ladies Bazaar.
All Proceeds from ‘Dancing for a Cause’ will be donated to Missionaries of the Poor and a portion of those funds will be retained in Cayman for Missionaries of the Poor Associates to assist with the needs of the local community.

The show will take place on one day only, with a matinee at 3pm and an evening performance at 7pm at the Harquail Theatre.

A donation of $30 will secure a seat at both the 3pm and 7pm show. Donations of $15 will allow a child under 12 into the 3pm show. There will be no children’s prices at the 7pm show. Also available are batch of 10 tickets for $250.
