Feedback from Parents of Caribbean Dance School Students:

My daughter started dancing with Caribbean Dance at the age of three. She was inspired and enthralled after attending the annual Caribbean Dance performance. Kinder and Child level instructors Monty Thompson, Curliss Solomon-John  and   Dr. Vanda Espinosa make the children’s classes fun (Monty and Curliss are Company Founders).

It’s pretty wild to have such experienced and talented artists teaching the youngest dance students! They incorporate games and play into movement and rhythm training. It seems as though the smallest students are simply playing and having a wonderful time in the classes. It’s an incredible transformation at the end of the school year when these tiny performers put on a choreographed number on the big stage!

As a parent of a young dancer, I appreciate the artistic choices the instructors make in choreographing and choosing costumes for the students. The choices are sophisticated and age-appropriate. The people behind the scenes at Caribbean Dance are warm and friendly and truly care about each student. We feel like part of the family there.

My daughter has been a dancer with the Caribbean Dance Company (CDC), St. Thomas studio, for the past five years.

At the age of three, she became a member because of recommendations from friends and co-workers. She continues to be an active member of the program because she  enjoys learning new techniques as well as the opportunity to express herself creatively.

I appreciate CDC because it is one of the only dance schools that integrates contemporary dance  with various forms of Caribbean dance styles. As a result, my daughter is exposed to aspects of her West Indian culture that she would not have been able to experience under other circumstances . My daughter is now a confident, disciplined, creative eight year old who enjoys performing on any stage and I know this is in part a result of being a member of the Caribbean Dance Company.
