ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI –Dancers of all ages dazzled the crowd with their spectacular performances at the BVI DanceFest held at Sir Rupert Briercliffe Hall in Road Town on Saturday June 10, 2017.

The night kicked off with a stellar performance by the Grade 2 Ballet class called “Footprints in the Sand”, choreographed by Sylvanna L. Charles. As the night progressed, patrons were cheering and tapping their feet as they enjoyed performances ranging from several musical genres such as contemporary, hip hop, jazz and ballet.

Over 29 performances blazed the stage and a “Hip Hop Journey” number had the crowd in an uproar as the students of the Teen Tap and Jazz class unleashed some moves to oldies but goldies hip hop music.

Another remarkable performance was easily executed by the advance dance team, “Afro Pop” in which the young ladies took the audience back to Africa with a hint of modern dance.

The Dub Squad and Lady Rams of the Elmore Stoutt High School also gave unforgettable performances.

Invocation was given by Patricia Adams, while Damion C. Grange was master of ceremony.

Blessed with talent

Director of the BVI Dance School, Mrs Sandy Lyons explained that the BVI Dance School is not just a way to showcase the students of the school but to create a venue and opportunity for other groups to show off their talents.

“We are so blessed to have so many talented children eager to dance and perform at this year’s DanceFest,” stated Mrs Lyons.

BVI DanceFest is produced by the BVI DanceFest Committee which comprises a group of people from the community who work tirelessly in raising funds for the promotion of the performing arts in the Virgin Islands (UK). Additionally, the Committee is most proud of the financial aids and scholarships that are given to children within the community who are not able to afford the dance classes.

“Let us now go forth to bridge heaven and earth through the spirit of dance,” remarked Delight Charles, President of BVI DanceFest Fund & Committee.
