Caribbean School of Dancing team departed for the All Dance International Championships

Dancing team

A 22-member team from the Caribbean School of Dancing departed for the All Dance International Championships in Orlando, Florida on Monday.

 

The All Dance International Championships is one of the world’s largest dance organisations and has a presence of over 100 countries, according to its website. The championships will be run from November 24-December 1 and on December 2 the team is expected to return.

 

Bridgette Wilson, head of the school, told Newsday that the team is expected to compete in 16 divisions. The teachers of the school and a senior student choreographed his competition pieces.

 

The school’s not playing for the first time. Late last year, Wilson was told about the event and was then able to put together a team of 18 students aged 12 to 17 to participate “quite easily.”

 

“We’ve been reading. We had a week to practice dance and submit a video audition… and we were successful in being invited to perform with four pieces in Orlando. “The band finished first in two groups (contemporary duet for adults and lyrical large group) and second in the neoclassical solo.

 

This year’s opportunity came again and Wilson wanted to include more students.

 

“This year we’ve got 22 students, all between the ages of 12 and 17. This year we’re sending up 16 bits.

 

“Last year we didn’t very well understand the competition, and we tested the waters. Now that we’re a bit more comfortable we’re submitting 16 pieces of choreography that four teachers have choreographed, “she added.

 

The school was founded by Marcia Moze, 62-year-old Port of Spain. Some of his alumni are at Juilliard, New York’s renowned conservatory of performing arts. The Caribbean School of Dancing has “a wide range of successful students,” but several events have not been performed previously. Dancing’s Caribbean School offers salsa, jazz, tap, and Afro-Caribbean dance classes.

 

Wilson noted that the school has produced the largest number of artists, choreographers and other people involved in the dance community, both domestically and internationally known.
