February 12th and will culminate with an Open Day on March 19th at the studio of
the Crystallite Dance Academy on Mongiraud Street.
“Teachers will be staging their first presentation. The public is invited to
witness the teachers’ creativity and their applied knowledge of various dancing
techniques. The current group of teachers are enjoying the program and all in
all the program has been a success. Persons who miss out can register for the
next cycle commencing January 2006”, Ms. Bernard said.
