Performers at the launch of Dominica can Dance on August 9, 2012.

Roseau, Dominica (August 24, 2012): The much-anticipated Dominica can Dance (DCD) show is on at the Arawak House of Culture on Saturday, August 25, 2012 from 7:00 p.m. More than 20 individuals and groups will compete at this event, the first of its kind in Dominica. Ansel Prince, Coordinator of the event, said the organizing committee is very excited.

“After months of planning, we are thrilled that the show is finally coming off on Saturday, thanks to our major sponsor LIME. It has been a dream of mine for some time now because Dominica is blessed with an abundance of talent and dancing skills are no exception. We want to bring this to the fore in a huge way and patrons can expect a show of a lifetime,” said Mr. Prince.

The vision of the DCD Committee is to create an avenue to develop and celebrate the art of dance in Dominica and organizers of the event say it’s going to be a true celebration.

“Several genres of dance will be showcased, including Latin, Creative/Contemporary, Traditional and Hip Hop, so Saturday’s show will truly be a festival of dance. We encourage everyone to come out and support the contestants and to text for their favourite performers. We want to empower and encourage persons to express themselves through dance and to elevate dance as an art form in Dominica, while engaging persons in positive and healthy activities,” they stated.

Tickets for the show cost only $10 and are available at The Glam and from members of the DCD Committee. Other sponsors include SAT Telecommunications Ltd., DHTA, DNO, Sea World Guest House, O.D.
