Every dancer did their part with Passion and Energy literally through the roof and our musicianship was AMAZING... We even had beautiful singing in Creole by our very own student
@ortaaoverdose with English translations performed by Miss Hettie and @paetra19 as Spoken Word.

But wait, there's more... We even had a whacking solo juxtaposition section from our very own student, Chris!!! Thank you @philiphamiltonmusic and @fitzoneseven for your brilliant music. Thank you, @cumbedance, for this wonderful opportunity. And, thank you @chicava and @jimenapiacumbe for your brilliant programming, curation, and leadership. You all ROCKED!
