LEAPS OF FAITH: L'Acadco: A United Caribbean Dance Company is observing 30 years of dance theatre in 2013, and the renowned troupe has come up with a year-long series of big plans to celebrate this huge milestone. According to a release from the company, planned events and activities will not only be centred on a celebration of dance but also dance education, which is equally important. Events will include workshops across the island, a tour of China, the annual season of dance at UWI’s Philip Sherlock Centre, and a free performance during Jamaica’s 2013 Independence celebrations. A major highlight will be the publication of a book on L’Antech, the first and only dance technique created and documented in the Caribbean. L'Antech is also exam-based and tests are currently being developed to form part of the CAPE Dance Exams at the sixth-form level.
