ON THE RADAR: Shelley-Ann Maxwell hosting special Cuban dance workshop + Miss Kitty’s Good Girl... to be launched in Kingston

KIT LIT: A day before the official release of her first work of fiction, Good Girl Gone Bad, radio host-cum-chick lit author Khadine ‘Miss Kitty’ Hylton will treat fans and book lovers to a launch and reading of the new work at Bookophilia on Nov. 3, starting at 6:30pm. Good Girl Gone Bad, which explores infidelity and other juicy relationship themes, is being published by Pageturner Books. In a recent poll, 56 per cent of TALLAWAH readers said they'd read Good Girl Gone Bad.

DANCING QUEEN: In the artistic world, it’s a rite of passage for gifted and celebrated performers to pass down the knowledge and insight they’ve gleaned throughout their careers to the new and next generations. Shelley- Ann Maxwell is supremely cognizant of this. The NDTC alumni and former dancer with Tavaziva Dance, The Lion King and Fela!, will be conducting a two-hour workshop which will include, an hour and 20 minute Cuban Contemporary class, followed by 40 mins of learning contemporary movement repertoire from the works of her company, the MaxwellDanceProject, which is based in London.

Described as “fast-paced and challenging,” Maxwell’s Cuban contemporary class takes on a structure that follows the style of the Cuban modern technique but with a contemporary twist. The upcoming workshop is for advanced and professional dancers over the age of 15. Info: 285-0315.
