Jèté workshop gives dancers a new experience

Over 80 dancers came out to the Gros Islet Secondary School on November 16 to participate in the workshop produced by the Ministry of Tourism, Heritage and the Creative Industries.

All 18 dance crews were present — New Generation, Fusion, Cam Dancers, MJ Dancers, RADTP 86, Onyx, N Vouge, Genuine Edition, Masqueraders, New Stars, Dance Xpressions SLU, Twisted, Total HD, En DE Dance and Zero Gravity.

The workshop was hosted by Jèté judges Louisa ‘Loulou’ Paul and Olivia Sampson. The workshop featured African dance, which was taught by one of St. Lucia’s dance gurus Trevor King.

As part of the workshop, the dancers were introduced to the Jèté team, and given two master classes by King. The dance crews all had an opportunity to sit down with the judges and discuss the criteria of the competition and what was expected from them.

The dance crew leaders were also able to submit and sign their invoices to receive $500 for costuming and $1, 000 appearance fee for the quarterfinals.

The quarterfinals will be held on December 13.

The public is invited.
