NDTC FLORIDA PRESENTATION
CELEBRATION 60 YEARS OF INDEPENDENCE AND DANCE HERITAGE
In celebration of Jamaica’s 60th anniversary of Independence, The Louise Bennett-Coverley Heritage Council will present The National Dance Theatre Company of Jamaica (NDTC), for three performances in South Florida. Under the Patronage of Consul General Oliver Mair, Gala Performances will be on Saturday, October 1st at the South Miami Dade Cultural Arts Center and Sunday, October 2nd at The Miramar Cultural Center, in Miramar. The Florida performance engagement will include a dedicated performance for children and workshops on Monday, October 3rd.
A full NDTC experience offers an exciting and dynamic experience for the entire family. Closing each gala performance is a master work and perennial audience favourite from one of the Caribbean’s most brilliant minds and prolific choreographers, co-founder of the NDTC, Prof. The Honourable Ralston Milton “Rex” Nettleford, OM, FIJ, OCC.
The NDTC has performed to critical acclaim in the international arena in regions such as the Caribbean, North, Central and South America and Europe. The wide-ranging repertoire reflects the creative imagination and cultural experiences of Jamaica and the Caribbean through the lens of choreographers hailing from Jamaica, Cuba, Haiti, Barbados and the United States.
The last performance of the NDTC in Florida was in 2010. A performance of the Company in 2022 will renew and strengthen the cultural and artistic ties between both countries and bring hope and fulfilment to the people of Florida as they celebrate this milestone occasion. The appearance would also promote cultural understanding, appreciation of diversity and affirm cultural identity through a comprehensive showcasing of artistic excellence that is inherent in the people of the Caribbean.
