Every year the CAM Dancers host a number of events to keep their members and parents entertained.
CAM Dancers year starts in September and ends in July the following year. Our activities begin with Anniversary Week and ends with Awards night.
A few activities hosted during the year are Little CAM Princess Pageant, Character Christmas Party, Easter Camp, Kiddies Carnival Mas Camp & Dance Recital and finally the Awards night.
CD4L (CAM Dancers 4 Life) Awards and Dinner 2018 was hosted on July 21, at Windjammer Landing Beach Resort & Spa. This year, the theme for the awards followed on from the dance recital theme ‘Raising The Barre’.
Supreme performance earned recognition. This is the event the girls mostly look forward to, as they are rewarded for all their hard work throughout the year. During the awards ceremony, dancers from the various divisions portrayed different types of talents, not only dance, to show that the group does not only focus on dance.
The guest speaker for the evening,Ms. Shatorya Jn.Baptiste, spoke to the dancers about her journey and how they can reach her level someday. She mentioned how difficult it was for her to fit in,and how dance contributed to her growth mentally and physically. Her speech showed great correlation with a drama presentation put on by the Advance Team. The Advance Team performed a skit on ‘words doing harm, so speak positively and support each other’.
The evening commenced with a presentation of certificates to all dancers who participated in the 2018 dance recital.
CAM Dancers also supports the education of its team members which is why dancers must maintain grades at a minimum ‘B’ level; presentations were made to the students who wrote at the Common Entrance level.
The group looks forward to an even more successful 2018/2019 year which commences in September.
