John Gray High School students showed off some fancy footwork Wednesday morning (9 March) at a special dance workshop.
Cayman’s International Dance Festival is in its second year, and dancers from Tampa’s KanDance and Co. brought some new moves to school.
Student dance workshops were also held at Lighthouse School Wednesday.
Caydance organiser Kirk Rowe, also artistic director at KRI Performing Arts told Cayman 27 exposing Cayman’s youth to the medium of dance is a big part of the festival.
“We wanted to get kids who don’t have the time to go to dance classes, but have a passion, or their parents cannot afford it, we would bring [dance] to them so they can see professionals enjoying what they do and maybe [the students] will have a passion to take it on further,” said Mr. Rowe.
The CayDance festival officially kicks off Wednesday night with a red carpet welcome party at the Wharf.
Thursday (10 March), CayDance street fair, an all-day event will take place at KRI studios (opposite the Office) in George Town.
